With your donations we will provide educational programs and events that will promote community gardening and healthy lifestyles within Springfield and we will strive to increase access to fresh, sustainably grown food throughout the city. We will work towards integrating gardening and nutrition into school curriculums, and creating work-force development programs for youth and beginning urban farmers.
We will work to ensure that all community gardens have access to water, tools, and soil testing that are necessary for success. We will engage city and county officials to permit ordinances and regulations that encourage urban agriculture. We will identify and assess available land plots in and around Springfield for agriculture use and work with the city of Springfield to facilitate the acquisition of these plots for urban agriculture.
Your donation will help us grow so much more than gardens! It will help us grow Springfield into a vibrant, thriving community.
