Plant seeds of change! Giving Tuesday to beginning farmers! Your donation will support the beginning farmers attending Groundswell’s Program to learn to grow food, implement climate resilient farming practices, and access to farmland.
We had a great harvest this year! We harvested lots of tomatoes, Burmese goodies such as gotu kola and bitter eggplant, and more. As you know, our programs prioritize farmers from socially disadvantaged groups – African-American, Latinx, Native American, women, immigrants, LGBTQ+, and your small donation can have a great impact.
“I know I didn’t have a green thumb before, and I had no idea I could grow this food!” a statement from one of our incubator farmers.
Please consider donating now and help change the local food system by empowering folks to learn to grow local food.
Have a great week everyone! Thank you again for your support!
