Welcome to Escaping The Odds Podcast. EPISODE 9 WITH DAVID EDWARDS

David Edwards story is an absolute comeback story. Growing up in Chicago south side and north side. He was always an entrepreneur owning a salon/barber shop. His life took a drastic turn when he was arrested for 2 homicides at his place of business. Eventually serving 10 years in Illinois State prison. David returned to the streets with a plan to stay on the right path. A trip to New Mexico would help change the trajectory of his life.A meeting with a gentleman who legally grew marijuana and veggies/fruits allowed him to see the opportunity to learn about urban agriculture.

He came back to Chicago with a plan to build out an urban farming location. Smooth & Social root cafe was born.

The new found business is a mixture of urban farming, cafe and veggie/fruit distributor. David’s business has caught the attention of local and National media. He’s now serving a different kind of “Green” and is having a positive impact on the community. I highly encourage a visit to the store in Chicago at 1517 west warren Blvd . @smoothandsocialroots Instagram.
