the project

The beautiful thing about this project is that it will help our under-resourced neighbors to have a space to learn how to grow food. This will empower self-sufficiency and the importance of generational wisdom concerning good physical and mental health through conscious eating. This greenhouse effect will wisely tie resources within our communities one home at a time. The fact that 10 families per quarter will be learned concerning food growing will allow 40 families yearly to now have WiseTies CoGardens impact which is the goal. 

the steps
