Farm of Hope Fund

Fund Type: Committee Advised
Regional Foundation: Greater Harrisburg Foundation

Hope Springs Farm, a licensed adult day program, provides developmentally disabled adults with meaningful work on a farm, along with joyful group activities that lead to satisfying friendships. The founders chose TFEC for their funds because they wanted to be connected to, and be made known to, their local community. Hope Springs Farm Fund raises money for the enrichment of the program: specifically, supplies for the 4-season greenhouse, seeds and vegetable plants for the outdoor gardens, instructional books on animal husbandry, supplies for cooking and baking, and cookbooks for homegrown food stuffs.
