The Community Foundation of Western North Carolina generously awarded The Lord’s Acre a $5,500.00 grant in 2010.
We are extremely grateful for this grant as it has played a significant role in doubling our harvest area. Because of CFWNC’s grant we were able to plant a 1/4 acre plot of potatoes in an area that was just ground cover last year. This allowed us to more than double our production which up till now has gone primarily to Food For Fairview but, because of our increased production, we’ve added other non profit organizations this year.
The grant expenditures went to 3 main areas: Irrigation, tools and soil amendments, and building materials for a washing table (plus a small amount to fence the Kid’s Garden).
