The Cooper Family are a family who are constantly thinking of their neighbors, before themselves. When the 2021 Action Project Grants opened up we expected to receive an application from Bernard, but we didn’t expect it to take off quite like it has. The Coopers applied and received funding to buy a greenhouse and begin growing plant start ups to give out to those in the neighborhood that could use and grow them. The Coopers not only purchased a greenhouse and began using it to grow their sprouts, but they also began cultivating their personal property to expand what they could grow. They have given out over 500 startups at this point, and have put many more into the ground to be grown. The goal is for the Coopers to begin selling a portion of their yield, to fund next years farm.
