Grant Summary: A New Leaf provides individuals with developmental disabilities life skills, marketable job training through horticultural therapy, community based vocational placement, and residential services to increase their independence. A New Leaf is offering an innovative approach to solving two community issues: systemic problems of poor health and unemployment among individuals with disabilities; and hunger/lack of fresh produce to some food insecure areas of our community. Blooming Acres is a unique, three-acre farm where our clients are the primary operators and thousands of pounds of produce are offered in collaboration with other local nonprofits to feed the hungry in our community.
