Formerly an English teacher and real-estate consultant, Fred Young is a passionate individual with an inspiring dream.
He spends most of his time promoting his vision of eco-communities enriching both urban and rural lifestyles, and teaching others 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 graduate 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.
