It has been a transformative year at Green Village Initiative! With big smiles, dirt under our nails, and sweat on our brows, we have been hard at work on our urban farm, school gardens, youth leadership program, and community gardens.
This year we took on strategic planning; our staff, board, and AmeriCorps service members created a three-year road map that includes working with our community partners towards a shared vision of a healthy, vibrant, and more resilient Bridgeport. We have set rigorous goals that will have a measurable and long-lasting impact. We now ask for your support to help us achieve them.
Already this year, hundreds of visitors have learned and farmed with us while growing thousands of pounds of fresh food for the community and Bridgeport’s high school cafeterias. Field trips, tours, and volunteers have energized the farm and are changing lives. We have boosted community garden registration and partnered with culinary entrepreneurs to add flavor to our agricultural workshops. Farmer Ellie has bolstered the curriculum of our Youth Leadership Program, the heart and soul of GVI.
We have come this far because of your support. You have weeded with us, encouraged us, and continued to help us make GVI the best it can be. You are our farm stand customers, garden captains, and gardeners. You are our mentors, our peers, our community leaders, and the pioneers of urban agriculture. You are our board members, our founders, our friends and family, and the funders who believe in us and in our work.
