My family and I have been wanting to start a nonprofit, we are in the process now just waiting for the 501c3. In the meantime, we would like to start a community garden here on our land to provide produce for our community and our surrounding communities. I plan to do both a spring and fall garden in which I plan to plant a variety of things:
Vegetables: Carrots, squash, cucumbers, corn, potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, okra, and greens
Fruit: Watermelon, cantaloupe, strawberries, we would also like to have some orange, grapefruit, avocado, and lemon trees
Herbs: Cilantro, parsley, rosemary, and sage
I am asking for 40,000 so I can get a small tractor to remove some trees, make the rows and do the upkeep on the garden. I have been looking around pricing small tractors for what I need it for and they are between 30,000-40,000 at this time I don’t have the means to purchase one my hours were cut back when the pandemic hit. Any donations will help and be greatly appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to read my story.
