It’s been full steam ahead. And it’s the partnerships we have that have made all the difference. Our crowdfunding supporters and terrific individual donors have been instrumental in getting us up and growing, and supporters such as the Indiana ARC, the Klau Family Foundation, the Davey Family, and the Pokagon Fund have generously contributed a portion of the start-up costs toward our aquaponic greenhouse. In addition, Home Depot has offered both supplies and labor, and an award from the Kelly Cares Foundation supports the development of our pilot training program for autistic young adults in on-the-job skills in farming and aquaponics. Such widespread help from so many people means the world to us.
Soon we’ll have 4000 new square feet of growing space. And along with expansion comes the opportunity to create more job opportunities and enrich the community with food that is delicious, healthy and local.
We’re grateful for everyone’s support and help in the work that lies ahead. Our innovation is to grow both good food and good jobs for our local community. We certainly couldn’t do this without you!
