Review for SeedMoney, Scarborough, ME, USA
As an organization, Grow Local South Texas has a mission to grow a healthy, local community by improving access to, education about and advocacy for affordable, nutrient-dense foods. SeedMoney has helped us over the past few years to further this mission by improving healthy, local food access in a low food access neighborhood by providing funds to expand our Food Forest area where the neighborhood has 24 hr access to fresh fruits on our fruit trees (when in season). SeedMoney has also helped us further our mission in both areas of access and education by helping us rebuild our hoophouse which was heavily damaged during Hurricane Harvey. Our hoophouse allows us to start new plants and keep plant starts and young trees safe during adverse weather conditions. It is used in all of our educational programming, including our important youth education programs, and provides an easy and safe garden education area for our youngest garden visitors. It also furthers food access in our area by allowing us to increase our food-producing plant starts and keep them safe and healthy.
