 Soul to Soil Initiative 

Every person matters. Yet people with disabilities are often shut out of opportunities to provide for themselves and contribute to our world. Along with the lower possibility of having a job comes the higher likelihood of poverty. Through urban agriculture, we can give everyone the chance to plant hope, grow abilities, and harvest opportunity.

The Home Depot Foundation has generously blessed us with a grant that will fund our new Soul to Soil program, a cooperative between urban agriculture and prevocational training for adults with disabilities. Truly Living Well and the Frazer Center are partnering to build an inclusive community that provides adults with disabilities the training, support and opportunity to develop employable skills, engage in meaningful work, earn an income to help support themselves, and give back to our community. This social enterprise will train people to grow high quality, natural and organic herbs that can be sold fresh, dried, and packaged into herbal teas and products. 

This collaboration will give people with disabilities more meaningful lives as they gain new skills and build relationships with their peers and community.
Young Urban Growers
End of the Year Wrap-Up

Last week was the final week for our 2015-2016 Young Urban Growers (YUG) program year.  TLW introduced YUG in 2014 and since then has had programming at the Kindezi School, the Frazer Center, Pittman Park Community Center. Boys and Girls Club of Thomasville and Harland, and Langston Hughes High School. From installing new garden beds at Pittman, designing greenhouse prototypes, harvesting herbs for tea, digging in the dirt for worms, and cooking with greens from the garden, the students have learned how to be gentle, care for plants, and nurture other living things. Through team building and group activities, the children have developed leadership roles that will enable them to take these lessons home and be environmental stewards in their own communities.

We cannot wait for what is in store for fall 2016 for our young growers!
