From Food Desert to Food Oasis!

MISSION

We are aiming to promote Regenerative Neighborhood Development by creating a sustainable “Bleacher Garden” and high yielding “foodscapes” throughout The Bridge Campus in Harrisburg (former Bishop McDevitt). We are anticipating a yield of over 6,000 pounds of vegetables in the first year with increases of about 25% a year over the subsequent years as we improve the garden space and soil makeup. The first year, that is enough to supply 120 families with 50 pounds each of fresh vegetables over the growing season. Empower at The Bridge Foundation has partnered with community organizations City F.A.R.M. and Evolve Youth Trades Academy to bring this vision to life!
