Help Build Food Security in South Fairbanks!

In solidarity with the neighborhood, Bread Line, Calypso Farm and the Folk School are working together to put food security in the hands of residents of South Fairbanks, the most food insecure area in Fairbanks.

With your support, we can build a future where home gardens and urban farms thrive, all people have access to fresh food, and young people help lead the way as agricultural leaders!

How Funds Will Be Used

1.  Bread Line and Calypso both operate large urban gardens in South Fairbanks. Funds will help expand these gardens with carpentry and building projects provided by the Folk School.

2.  Calypso, Bread Line and the Folk School will work together to provide educational opportunities for home gardeners in the neighborhood. Funds will support a tool lending program and accessible community workshops in gardening, cooking garden produce, and food preservation.

3.  In 2021, Calypso is launching an on-the-job garden and leadership training program for young adults in the neighborhood. These Garden Leaders will receive training in: agriculture, cooking with garden produce, teaching home gardening workshops, and food justice advocacy. Calypso, Bread Line and the Folk School will all provide educational and employment opportunities through this program!
