Mississippi African Shea Cooperative

Mississippi African Shea Cooperative, a newly formed cooperative registered as a 501c3 nonprofit.  We are a heart-centered collective founded by women, who are committed to assisting with alleviating the negative effects of environmental degradation. Located in Pickens, MS on Francis Flowers and Herbs Farm, a Biodynamic/Organic  farm, we are in partnership with Creative Projects International to support the micro co-ops across the African Shea Tree Park land. Globally, we join in unison to protect the African Shea Tree Parkland from extinction through restoration with intention of bringing the Shea Tree Parkland back to its pristine nature before human civilization. We assist with building infrastructures in processing the healing Shea Butter as well as promoting fair trade ideals and economics where everyone flourishes. With firsthand wisdom we advocate the healing properties of the Shea Tree Parkland, Shea Butter, and Native African Black Soap. Locally, we educate in health and wellness through food and herbs, agriculture, watershed literacy, leave no trace, self-sustainability, and product creation using Shea Butter and Black Soap as the bases.  Together we stand uniting Mississippi, Africa and the world bringing all involved to higher vision creating a natural wealth cycle enabled by the energetic heart.
