Our goal is to make celebrating with fireworks easy, affordable, and legal.
We are far from the biggest fireworks production company, in fact we are not even trying for that title. We want to be the best, the one that does our job so well you our customer will ask us to do it again the next year and every one after that.
“A happy and healthy community is not a fairytale. All you need is a seed.”
— NADIA Shabazz, FOUNDER
Shabazz had to extend the garden to her front lawn but even then, it wasn’t enough to feed all who wanted to be involved. With neighbors January Blum and Lucas Dupont, Shabazz found a large vacant lot on Main Street and secured it as a farming cooperative. Word about Project Sprout spread throughout Kent County, so the team was invited to help start other community gardens.
Homeland Fireworks was forged from a need to be able to produce high quality commercial fireworks shows in the state of Oregon and beyond. It is our belief that celebration in pyrotechnics evokes emotions and creates memories unattainable by other methods. All the licensed pyrotechnicians that we employ on our shows truly enjoy the art form and strive to make each show unique and memorable.
With ten gardens and counting, Project Sprout has seen a significant improvement in mental and physical health for all participating community members. Other than lowering obesity, blood pressure, and depression rates, the crime rate has also fallen. Our children are doing better in school, reporting higher grades and aspirations, and better job prospects.
If you live near one of our gardens, get involved to receive portions of each harvest. We accept volunteers regardless of skill level. There is a rotation in roles, but we’ll teach you all the skills you need to know. Teenagers 14 years and older can earn community service credits for school in addition to getting produce for their families. Donations are also vital to our growth, as we use them for seed, fertilizer, tools, and outreach.
