Intro:
Hello Everyone,
We are Park City Harvest Llc my business partner and I are both African American Horticulturist with a focus on organic small scale urban farming in Connecticut where it is known as the most unjust state as far as educational equity, health equity, criminal justice, environmental & economical justice. Even so we both found a way to earn our degrees in horticulture and start our own business. One thing we noticed is that with us being a product of parents who are from third world countries, acquiring land was the hardest task we had to face till date. Now that we finally obtained the land,1 acre open land, we need to build it up for proper use of an organic farm. With this farm we hope to "Change the Image of Farming" by inspiring other young people, especially those of color to start farming and growing their own rather its for profit or health.  We also have high hopes of transforming most of the land into a donation farm within 1 to 2 years.

With that being said here are something we would like some help with:
Tools (Shovel, Fork, Bed rake &etc.)
Seeder
Cooler
Push pull hoe
Storage space
Wash station
Harvest Bins
A decent transport vehicle
Walk behind tractor *Long Term*

Who will manage the land:

SHAWN: Title - Horticulturist

Shawn developed the love and passion for all things plants very early. Over the years he sharpened his skills growing a variety of plants in many different ways and learned how they interact with each other and the surrounding environment. This curiosity of plant propagation continued as he pursued and attained his degree in horticulture at naugatuck valley community college. As a horticulturist Shawn currently spends his days farming and volunteering his time to help others learn the ways of organic gardening and providing healthy options all while gaining patience and appreciation for the natural world we live in.

RICHARD: Title - Horticulturist 
Being born on an island where everyone is dependent on nature, Richard fell in love with plants at a young age. He was able to understand the importance of having ones own crops, whether it was to feed the family, donate, or vend. Seeking an education that would match his love for plants led him towards Horticulture (The art and science of plants) and he hasn't turned back since.

One - two farm crew members & three interns.
