Be On the Farm project

$560 of $30,000 goal

Raised by 9 people in 17 months
Happy Village originally arose from a desire to help the Korean-American community, but quickly grew into a program to assist all low-income individuals and others in need across the entire diverse community of Koreatown.

Over the last seven years, Happy Village has focused on cultivating community engagement by connecting people through educational, charitable, and community-building events.

Our newly launched project, Be on the Farm, provides access to knowledge and services geared toward establishing urban farms in the most densely populated area of Los Angeles.  Be on the Farm delivers increased food security and therapeutic gardening opportunities to an underserved population while fostering a connection to the roots of our culture as well as each other.

Be on the Farm believes that it takes a Happy Village to create a healthy community.

Donated funds will provide: 

*Wood & Materials for raised bed 
*Irrigation system
*Soil & Seeds
*Transportation
*Heavy duty tools  
*Compost bins
*Organic Fertilizer 

Your donation will help us to create a healthy, sustainable community. We are stronger together than we are apart!

Hello everyone! It has been a while since GoFundMe has been updated, but here is our current progress ever since our last update:

First of all, we now have a website! Check out http://beonthefarm.org where we have information about our projects, articles, and so much more.

We have participated at the KTown Night Market, and managed to get a couple of donations in and also spread the word about our cause! Thank you to them for providing us a free booth.

We have worked on two more farm sites, one in The Korea Daily Parking Lot, and the other at Los Angeles Senior High School! It was great to work with the kids there and educate them about farms and the importance of sustainability in our world.

We have so many more sites coming up, and the horizons are expanding for us! Thank you for your support throughout this journey and make sure to spread the word so that we can expand even further!

From making the raised bed from scratch to setting up at the site. All woods are recycled wood we have found on the street of LA.

Sometimes we do not even see the value of things. but when you take care of them love them and handle them well, all become worthy.
