    Sustainable Community Urban Farms Initiative

    We seek to establish a solar-powered water conservation and urban vertical community farm pilot project and job training program at Union Church in downtown Little Tokyo. In partnership with LA Urban Farms, we will install 20 vertical garden tower planters at Union Church. We will also train job-ready, former Skidrow residents of Union Rescue Missions’ Job Development Program and Little Tokyo residents in the maintenance of the tower gardens and in growing profitable herbs and vegetables.
