What does Growing Solutions Farm do?
Operating under the umbrella of Urban Autism Solutions,Growing Solutions Farm is an educational training ground, community- supported agriculture operation and charitable organization all rolled into one. This 1.2-acre garden grows fresh produce for sale to the community, as well as to a handful of local restaurants, but the best thing is that it is planted, maintained, harvested and sold by young adults with autism. This training garden donates some of the produce to local food banks, as well as to the participants themselves.
