Final push to support SWAG Project #FundSWAG

Click here to make your contribution to our vanguard Newark Ag Project – South Ward Agri-Garden (SWAG) Project.

Even your small contribution goes along way toward our sustainable agriculture and youth development practices. We are investing in infrastructure that will decrease our costs each year, and we are training new youth interns to help us operate the farm in the future. So your dollars go beyond just 2015, and they go beyond just farming – they are community and people development through urban agriculture and food justice programs!

We only have one month to go – so don’t wait!

#FUNDSWAG

SWAG Project needs your contribution to become self-sufficient and sustainable in 2015. Even your small contribution of $25 goes a long way at SWAG! We are investing in new infrastructure to save seeds, water, and make our own compost – and we are investing in youth and the future by training new sustainability and operations interns to be future leaders of the project.
