Help us grow an urban farm at League School

We're partnering with Smile Farms to create an urban farm at League School. The project will provide supported work opportunities for people with developmental and emotional disabilities. 

Smile Farms is a nonprofit organization that provides adults with developmental disabilities meaningful work opportunities. Smile Farms makes rewarding, agricultural work accessible to these individuals by bringing farming opportunities to the communities where they live. 


Urban farming at League School

Our urban farm will support aspiring adults and teenagers with developmental disabilities.

Our new urban farm will include a range of features — a hoop house, raised beds, an irrigation system and more. The site will provide employment and volunteer opportunities for individuals in our adult programs as well as League School students.

Our prevocational program teaches adults with behavioral and learning disabilities practical job skills for real world employment. Employment gives an enormous boost to our clients’ sense of pride and personal growth.
— Mark Handelman, LETC CEO

Smile Farms has generously pledged to cover 50% of the cost for our new urban farm.

We've raised over $7,500 to date. Will you help us reach our goal of $10,000?
