Project Title & Description
The Food Project Inc.
The Food Project's "Cultivating Partnerships for Healthy Urban Soils and Communities" project will educate inner-city residents on the techniques of safe, chemical-free urban agriculture in Dorchester, Massachusetts. This will be accomplished through weekly workshops and one-on-one consulting on safe-gardening techniques. They will also maintain their high-production farmland in the Dudley Street neighborhood and the new Urban Learning Farm in Roxbury, Massachusetts to provide experimental learning opportunities for at least 150 elementary school children and an additional 60 older youth.
