HISTORY

Located at 1603 13th St. in Des Moines, IA 50314 there is a community garden site called Empowerment Gardens.  The organization Homes 4 My Peeps (H4MP) leases the site from the city.  The garden site has been under utilized because of lack of water.  In the past we have rented the fire hydrant from the water company.  Due to lack of funds and now plot owners, we have been faced with a challenge. 

We have scheduled a event in April of 2016 that will provide water for the site.  Food grade barrels and or totes will hold the water and a small shed to guide the water will be built.  We look forward to having a productive season this year.

FUNDRAISING GOAL FOR THIS PROJECT $7,000.
