Partner: Hope Blooms
For young people in Halifax, a community greenhouse run by non-profit Hope Blooms is an opportunity for education, empowerment—and a brighter future. With support from Bullfrog customers, Hope Blooms installed a solar array on the greenhouse providing clean energy from the sun. The greenhouse—designed and operated by youth—grows more than 2,000 pounds of fresh produce every year. The greenhouse also produces its own salad dressing (using the fresh produce) that’s sold at local farmers markets. Proceeds from the sales contribute to education programs and scholarships for the kids.
