72 Hours to Go in our $4,000 Crowd-Funding Campaign!

Summer of Solutions Hartford

Our crowd-funding campaign, hosted on ioby.org, ends this SATURDAY JUNE 15th at MIDNIGHT!

We are trying to raise $4,000 to support five youth participants with need-based stipends.

With your support, each participant will dedicate 25 hours per week to cultivating community and school gardens in Hartford that will engage over 300 people in urban agriculture. For 15 hours per week, they will participate in workshops lead by local experts to learn how to cook, bake, grow their own food in an urban space, preserve harvests, and live sustainably in the city. Our team will organize community events such as potlucks, elementary school cooking classes, and free farm stands to establish the gardens as open and vibrant community spaces. Any contribution you can make, big or small, will help support four participants to commit to the program full time this summer!

Grand Aspirations is founded on a powerful and innovative method – being solutionary. The Summer of Solutions expresses the values, follows the principles, and utilizes the strategies of this solutionary method. During the Urban Farming Internship program, young people in Hartford work together to draw on the assets each of them already have and work together to advance personal competence in this method, build a community around it, and enact it in the broader world.
