SUPPORT TRICYCLE AND GROW A HEALTHIER COMMUNITY

Growing a healthier community takes hard work, fertile land, and financial resources. Our efforts to engage, empower, and educate our urban core about healthy food requires intensive training, upkeep of demonstration sites like our urban farms, and the necessary materials to work the land.

Your gift helps us teach families about healthy food choices; train urban farmers for employment; and create community hubs around our farms and orchards.
