Local growers or local farmers for the most part are micro growers doing their job in a plot of land that is less than 2 acres. The vast majority of them are actually growing food as an urban homestead in 1 acre or a fraction of an acre, that is completely fine as they have figured out how to grow excess food in order to bring to the farmers market. We applauded their efforts and dedication to keeping the farmers market growing, but do they need help in any way?
Our non-profit organization is working to identify the key areas where local growers suffer the most, we are focused on matching the right infrastructure needs of the local growers with donors whom are looking to help improve the daily lives of these local growers.
