KICKSTARTER: Hope Community Farm

In 2015, Louisville Grows and Gate of Hope Ministries International joined forces to create Hope Community Farm, a new 7-acre training farm and community garden on a former public housing site. The community farm is located at 1400 Bicknell Ave in the Iroquois neighborhood, and provides 35 refugees from Central Africa an opportunity to earn income, improve language skills, and expand their networks by utilizing and adapting their African farming skills in a Kentucky climate. This year's growing season is well underway, but the previously un-farmed soil is proving to be a challenge for our walk-behind tractor. For this project to succeed we need to purchase a used mechanical tractor and implements to ensure maximum growth and long-term success for our Hope Community Farm project.
