Formerly an English teacher and real-estate consultant, Fred Young the founder of Rainbow of Hope. He spends most of his time promoting a vision of eco-communities that enrich both urban and rural lifestyles, and teaching about farming, community organizing, and NGO management.
In the future, Fred hopes to spend more time nourishing, coordinating and educating the farm community. The first youth of his village to attend university, Fred retired from the corporate world in 2008 and fearlessly returned to his hometown in West Hunan, giving back to his community by creating an organic farming business and the Rainbow of Hope program.
While everyone appreciates organic farming, both farmers and consumers face the challenges with the higher cost of this high-quality produce.
