Urban Farming and Fresh Food Access For Local Communities

Urban Farming and Fresh Food Access For Local Communities

From Shante Walker

We are raising funds for our local California communities. We realized that there is a great need for community fresh food access. The funds will be used for soil, seeds, land, and testings for existing and new gardens.

Thanks to you, we can now offer a rooftop community garden to a low-income family residence supporting over 140 affordable homes.

While we have not hit our goal, we have hit 10%, and it's not too late to donate. We have 10 days left, share, post, repost to help make LA greener especially for those in need.

Be part of the solution!

Urban Farming and Agriculture 

The purpose of this program is to increase the development and or implementation of urban farming in our local communities especially those that are underserved, underrepresented, challenged, and low-income. 

Our urban farming and agriculture initiative was created to support the creation of new farms or gardens by and or in partnerships with The Niles Foundation, as well as maintaining existing farms and gardens already established in need of little TLC, which includes farms, gardens, rooftops, greenhouses, and the like.

This program focuses on sustainability, community action, education and fresh food access for local communities

The purpose of this initiative is to increase community access to local fresh food, increase the opportunity of clean water, increase our ecosystem habitats, decrease community carbon footprint, and to emotionally and economically stimulate our economy through community development.

Costs:

  • Soil, purchase, testings
  • Seeds
  • Land, use, lease, rental
  • Water, bills, testings
  • Equipment, rentals, lease

Our Goals :

  • Providing a space for those who want to grow food
  • Providing a space for people to come together
  • Growing fresh food to donate
  • Feeding our communities
  • Community awareness and skill development

This program is a long-term solution.
