Sustaining our community and each other

If speaking kindly to plants helps them grow, then imagine what speaking kindly to humans can do.

We describe SLP as an urban farm and education center where people can be immersed in the world of sustainability. We implement innovative and traditional technologies that help reduce our impact on the environment. Our 1 acre plot houses 34 grow beds (10 of which are dedicated to a Veteran volunteers), 3 sheds, a water catchment patio with solar panels, a greenhouse with aquaponics, a chicken coop, bee hives and a 10 stall compost station. All of these elements play a part in our exploration of what it means for our bodies, communities and planet to be healthy.
