Summer of Solutions is a youth lead urban farming nonprofit based out of Hartford’s Frog Hollow neighborhood. Summer of Solutions creates internship opportunities for young people to build community and school gardens. By maintaining a total of seven gardens, Summer of Solutions teaches young people, as well as members of the community, how to grow and prepare their own food.
On Friday, July 25th from 5-7pm Summer of Solutions will be holding its first “Fantasticfest” which will be a celebration of food, family, and fun. The event, held at Summer of Solutions’ community garden on Zion Street, will also feature a live puppet show, scavenger hunt, and a visit from the Frog Hollow Fire Department. The organization will also be fundraising by selling hot dogs, snacks and handcrafted goods. The event will highlight fantastic seasonal produce, grown by Summer of Solutions interns, volunteers, and participants.
