What would it be like to walk down Main Street and have access to fresh, organic vegetables that you could pick right out of a pot?
Well, Charter Oak has made this a reality. We have placed pots of growing vegetables at six locations in Hartford. We’re calling this project BOTS POTS because it is an “outgrowth” of Beat of the Street (BOTS), the newspaper we started that is written by people who are or were homeless and their allies.
BOTS POTS provides food for people who are in need, training and jobs for people experiencing homelessness (who have been hired to tend the pots), and at the same time, will beautify the city, because the pots are being turned into works of art by local artists.
You can help make BOTS POTS a success by donating any amount or by adopting a pot for $500. Click the donate button to make your gift.
Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
Check out the amazing press coverage we’ve received!
