The Flex Farm has been made possible through a grant from the Live Algoma, Community Give Back Dollars.

“Here in Algoma, we have embraced a “start small, scale-up” attitude towards collective action in our school district community. Reflective of that, our N.O.W. (Nourishing Our Wolves) Community Garden Center, located at the high school, has supplied enough lettuce for our salad bars with only ONE hydroponic unit.

Noticing our need for more produce, as our youth and our families are safer at home, we reached out to Fork Farms to purchase an additional hydroponic unit. Thanks to a generous and anonymous donor who believes in the way we lead, we now have not one – not two – but THREE hydroponic units.

In a few short weeks ahead, we will be able to scale-up our reach to our community – ensuring our youth and families have access to fresh produce.”
