The Urban Garden Greenhouse project is thriving! From construction to completion, it has truly been a journey. The beginning of construction dates back to January of 2021 when the project began.
In our first official growing season, The FACCES Urban Garden is thriving. We have seen significant growth in the many varieties of vegetables that we have, such as cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots, okra, etc. We welcome everyone to learn more about our growing process and ask questions about your own gardens through our Urban Gardener’s Meeting on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month!
Our crops are not the only thing that we have growing in the greenhouse. At the beginning of this summer, we officially launched our aquaponics program in The FACCES Urban Garden. We are raising 60 West Nile tilapia in our first year. Our tank will harvest 300 fish a year! We encourage families to bring their children to learn with us!
We plan to launch our service, The FACCES Farm Stand, in August of this year to give back to the people who have supported our greenhouse journey. Check out our “Events” page regularly to see what we have in stock and when you can come get fresh produce! Nourishing the minds, bodies and souls of the families and friends in our community will help The FACCES Urban Garden grow beyond what it is today. We are so excited to share this journey with you and look forward at what’s to come.
