Fresh EUP + LSSU
Organizational contact: Nome Buckman
University partner: Greg Zimmerman
About Fresh EUP:
Fresh EUP, created by Nome Buckman in 2012, has developed its own programmatic framework to offer free 4’ x 8’ garden beds and education sessions on growing and harvesting to participants in and around Sault Ste Marie. A Garden Mentoring Program was established after the first season so that returning gardeners could play a role in educating new gardeners. Despite the short growing season, 135 pounds of fresh food was harvested from 11 beds in 2013.
What FAIM supported:
The FAIM Project provided seed funding to get Fresh EUP up and running, and fully supported its operations between 2012-2017.
