At Providing HOPE we know that good health doesn’t just happen. It takes the right balance of physical activity, healthy food, and positive thinking. When one of the three is missing, our health is compromised.
Unfortunately, many in our community face chronic hunger. Without access to healthy meals, they are also most at risk for obesity, diabetes, and other diseases. We aim to change that.
Last season, Providing Hope created community gardens at three schools. Not only were we able to improve students’ access to fresh food, we also increased awareness by offering workshops on nutrition, food preparation and agriculture production. Best of all, local students were able to contribute to the well-being of their community by donating over 5,000 lbs. of produce to local food banks and meal programs!
This year, we are raising funds to support our Aeroponic Greenhouse Project. Our vision is to increase growing methods while introducing an innovative vocational track for students. Our goal is to erect a greenhouse that offers a vertical column growing system of aeroponics. The simple elements of aeroponics are air, sun, and mineral water. This elite growing system yields higher food output and requires less maintenance than traditional crop growing methods. Other advantages to this system are easy crop accessibility, year round growth, much more protection from disease and insects, and the highly efficient use of growing space.
But most of all, we’re Providing HOPE. Join the cause and make a difference today!!!!
