The plans included 28 16-foot raised cedar beds, 50 smart pots, 48 earth boxes, a full time Grower and Farm Operations Manager as well as a Vocational Coordinator. Additional spaces include educational sheds and a shipping pod for storage, a wash-pack processing center and a shaded outdoor classroom area.

Teachers, volunteers and agency staff engaged in daily work together with garden interns to develop the soft skills and resumes which will lead to future success in the workplace. All the while, we presented instructions to support individual gardeners using meaningful modifications with visual, printed and video models. We offered paid employment for up to 20 gardeners to include stations within the farm as well as sales and farm stand operations.
