Planting Seeds of HOPE

Planting Seeds of HOPE (PSH) relies on urban agriculture and food justice programs to transform communities and develop people and families according to its “HOPE” principles: Health, Open communities, People development, and Entrepreneurship.  One current initiative is SWAG Project Newark, through which PSH and other local partners run an urban farm and community center in the South Ward that serves as a hub for local fresh food access and production as well as learning around environmental sustainability, nutrition, food justice, and related topics.  PSH is also collaborating with groups in the Lincoln Park Coast Cultural District Facade to develop a farmers’ market, a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program, and sustainable infrastructure including composting and water-saving systems.
