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 firstname.lastname@example.org. To donate to the organization or help fund its first international farm located in Swaziland, visit the website.
