Check out this video made by the Health Care Foundation about the Juniper Gardens Training Farm. They wanted to highlight KCCUA's good work. We're so thankful for their partnership.

What a great week! Yesterday we found out that we will be a recepient of the USDA's Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program grant, which will keep us up and running for the next three years. This is great news. We're PUMPED!
Today, we had some fantastic volunteers and harvested tons of veggies! At the end of the day, our staff and farmers were thrilled. Check it out.
Also, come buy some of the tasty things we harvested out at the market tomorrow.
Three farmers will be at Overland Park and seven farmers will be at Brookside!

When customers use food stamps, they come to the market info booth and get tokens to spend with the farmers. At the end of the day, farmers come and cash in their tokens and get a check cut in their name. These farmers are happy counting their hard earned tokens.
