The biggest focus of The Farm currently is implementing a hydroponics program which will allow them to produce fresh produce for the community year round. 6 empty shipping containers arrived in mid-March, and by Fall of 2018 they will be filled with hydroponics equipment, ready to start growing greens and other produce. In addition, a greenhouse will be installed between two of the units, with the potential to be used both for hydroponics and aquaponics production. With carrying out a project this big, we definitely need the community’s help. In-kind donations of materials and skilled labor (such as electricians, HVAC technicians, and hydroponic consultants) will be critical in allowing us to construct the hydroponic and greenhouse facilities within our budget. GWCFB would like to thank the Neighborhood Assistance Tax Credit Program, UPMC, PNC, EQT, and Northwest Bank for their generous support of the hydroponics project.
