Kula Project Busy Educating, Building Sustainable Farms this Spring

The local non-profit has plenty of ways you can help as they rev up for a busy spring.

The Kula Project is looking forward to a bright future; a future in which everyone has access to fresh food. The non-profit - which began teaching innovative farming methods in hopes of creating sustainable communities last year - has plans for many more such projects during 2013.

Here's a peek at the upcoming spring itinerary, so far, and how you can get involved:

  • Canton Street is getting involved with the Kula Project - the organization will soon start picking up compost from local restaurants which will be used for local gardens.
  • The team will teach a group of third graders in downtown Atlanta about drip irrigation and how it works on the first day of spring, March 20.
  • They will join Project Live Love, another Roswell non-profit, for the LIVE LOVE event, April 6. The Kula Project will build a garden for the culinary program at the Gateway Center in Atlanta, which trains homeless people to work in restaurants around the city before facilitating job placement.
  • Finally, they will build a bamboo hydroponic system in Jamaica during the second week of April.

If you'd like to volunteer with the Kula Project or propose an opportunity for the non-profit to visit your organization, contact Sarah Buchanan at sarah@kulaproject.org. To donate to the organization or help fund its first international farm located in Swaziland, visit the website.

Keep in mind your local Starbucks has LOTS of free coffee grounds for your gardening and composting needs. Just stop by and we'll hand you a bag anytime we have some on hand!
