About DINE Corporation Agricultural Center 

The DINE Corporation Agricultural Center (DINE) is a minority-women-owned nonprofit in the rural low desert of central Arizona. We are a new, cooperative business being started by DINE  Corporation, an education and public service company that began in 2004 in Pleasanton California, and currently is in Arizona. The DINE team and board of directors are made up of women of color who are educated, focused, and ready to serve. We partner with other non-profits, Universities, and Colleges for sustainable solutions. We are solidifying plans to open our new operation in Caddo Parish Louisiana by March 2023. The goal is to plant Short Leaf Pine Trees and extend the indoor farming operation. 


DINE has a two-fold vision to provide sustainable solutions for maintaining an affordable wholesome food supply. Also, along with the agricultural workforce, we bring opportunities for socially disadvantaged communities.  We educate these communities and high school students in the areas of agriculture, conservation, and restoration, ecotherapy, Intro to botany, climate awareness, community service, and merging agricultural technology. We focus on food science, research & development, pollination, restoration and conservation, farming, and agricultural education, not only to combat food insecurity but also to provide job opportunities for the socially disadvantaged.

The DINE Corporation Agricultural Center is a nonprofit that will serve as a cooperative center for agri-business development. We work with many partners to provide agricultural job training for socially disadvantaged individuals. All our board members (100%) are women of color who have years of experience and expertise in business, agriculture, and education and represent several businesses that are part of the DINE Corp family. We know firsthand the challenges and barriers that members of the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous People Of Color) community face when trying to get ahead. We are committed to educating socially disadvantaged men and women to give them the skills they need to obtain living-wage jobs in the agribusiness field.


The DINE Corporation Strategy is to expand our vertical farm to Caddo Parish, Louisiana by the year 2023. To educate and train socially disadvantaged communities by teaching them about agriculture and conservation.
