SOLEfood Urban Farm Raising – Take 2!

Posted on: November 21st, 2009 by Heather

Following the inspiring efforts of nearly 100 volunteers participating in our first ‘Farm Raising’, Projects in Place is gearing up to do it again!

The SOLEfood Urban Farm Raising will take place next Sunday, November 29th. Our goal is to convert at least half of the unused parking spaces into planting beds.

An initiative of United We Can’s SOLE (Save Our Living Environment) Programthis fully functioning urban farm will provide inner city residents with employment; community kitchens, local residents, restaurants and caterers alike access to a valuable source of local and organic food. Once complete, the hope is to make the SOLEfood Urban Farm a social hub and information source.

A large and dedicated group is working together to meet our goal of having the farm fully operational, by Spring 2010. This effort would not have been possible without the combined efforts of Projects in Place and United We Can and many, many others, including:

  • The Home Depot
  • Houston Landscapes

Start time at 10am, but volunteers are welcome throughout the day. Please note, that in order to participate, all volunteers must register with  projectsinplace@gmail.com<http://projectsinplace.wordpress.com/2009/10/24/solefood-urban-farm-garden-raising/projectsinplace@gmail.com> . Light refreshments will also be provided on site. For more information, contact Bryce Gauthier, 603 317 9682, projectsinplace@gmail.com.
