Magic City Agriculture Project

Founded in 2011 to foster racial, economic, and environmental justice, the Magic City Agriculture Project (MCAP) helps communities of color and cash poor communities organize community-based democratic institutions and cooperative businesses, with a focus on sustainable agribusinesses.  MCAP is credited with helping people living in the Historic Smithfield Community form Dynamite Hill–Smithfield Community Land Trust (DH-SCLT), which became the first land trust in Birmingham in June of 2016.  The nonprofit also supports a small farm in the Historic Smithfield Community, which is considered a food desert.  To help develop the next generation of community leaders and organizers, MCAP’s Birmingham Institute runs numerous educational programs on a range of social justice issues.
