ABOUT GROWING UPTOWN
We know this pilot was a great success; 20 kits were distributed to families in need, and several of our new urban farmers have kept in touch to share the progress of their windowsill crops. Moving forward, DFM is putting together kits that are more robust and will include food staples such as onions and tomatoes. Ultimately, these simple Grow Kits are helping families learn more about where their food comes from and are just the beginning of how Growing Uptown can foster successful, impactful urban gardening as we expand the program.
