The Problem

We want to help neighborhood children grow their own food! Our home, and meeting place for our club, is located in an area high in crime and civil unrest where access to fresh, healthy, local produce is very limited. With this grant we can continue to turn our front yard into a produce producing landscape for children in the neighborhood.

Our Plan

Starting and example garden free for neighbors to eat from and provide kits for replicating it at their own home. We hope to serve as a model for other families to do the same; quickly changing this community from a food desert to an urban oasis at the hands of teachers, parents and children.
