Keep It Fresh is a campaign for youth, by youth, from across the country that uses the power of hip-hop as a force for positive change in communities, and creates real solutions, right now. Since 2011, Keep It Fresh has found exciting ways to galvanize young people into taking action and transforming their environment, including going on tour with Wiz Khalifa and Drake, and traveling around to college campuses.

This year, Keep It Fresh has partnered with Ietef Vita aka DJ CaveM, an “OG” (organic gardener) representing the historic Five Points district in Denver, CO. DJ CaveM—an award-winning activist, founder of the Brown Suga Youth Festival, a Green For All Fellow, a music producer, and a vegan chef—teaches how to grow greens and the history of hip-hop, (where “hip-hop” stands for Higher Inner Peace, Helping Other People). Together, Green For All and DJ CaveM hope Keep It Fresh Day becomes a national initiative.
