On April 24, volunteers from Lutheran Settlement House, 1340 Frankford Ave., Walmart, and the Federation of Neighborhood Centers (FNC) helped build 24 garden beds as part of a new urban farm at 1400 Frankford Ave.
The farm will be the harvesting site for FNC’s Teens 4 Good (T4G) program, a youth-led food production and nutrition business that will teach teens job skills and supply food for LSH’s food cupboard.
The teens will also use the produce for educational programs in LSH’s new commercial kitchen and work directly with seniors from LSH’s senior center.
The Walmart Foundation is making the renovation of the Settlement House Garden possible with a $50,000 grant.
Council President Darrell Clarke and Councilman Bill Greenlee attended the dig.
