How do you get fresh produce if you can’t afford to buy it? Wesley Urban Ministries has one solution—First Start Farm. This hydroponic vertical farm in downtown Hamilton grows tomatoes, peppers, and other produce. The food is provided free to low income, marginalized, and racialized community members, who can also increase their skills and knowledge about growing food in the city by working on the farm as pandemic restrictions permit.
Your Gift of $50 will provide supplies, such as seeds and gardening tools, for this new kind of farm that benefits the people who live nearby.
