Heart & Soil Garden Expansion: New Lot, New Opportunities

We are beyond excited to share some fantastic news with our Heart & Soil community. With the generous funding from the Parsons Foundation, we have successfully purchased the lot next door to our current garden! This new space marks a significant milestone in our mission to enhance urban agriculture and provide more opportunities for education and community engagement.

Expanding Our Vision

The acquisition of the new lot allows us to take several important steps forward:

  1. Indoor Classroom: We will build a climate-controlled indoor classroom. This will enable us to hold educational classes and workshops throughout the year, including the sweltering summer months when outdoor activities are challenging.
  2. Increased Capacity: The additional space means we can welcome more growers and community members into our garden. This expansion will help us grow more food and reach more people in our community who need fresh, healthy produce.
  3. Enhanced Community Engagement: With more room and better facilities, we can offer a wider variety of programs and events, fostering a stronger sense of community and encouraging more people to get involved in urban agriculture.

A Heartfelt Thank You

None of this would be possible without the incredible support of the Parsons Foundation. Their commitment to our vision has been instrumental in making this dream a reality. We are deeply grateful for their generosity and belief in the power of urban agriculture to transform communities.

What’s Next?

As we begin the process of developing the new lot, we will keep you updated every step of the way. From clearing the land to constructing the classroom, we will share our progress and invite you to join us in this exciting journey.
