Talena Klypak, President for Coach Hill-Patterson Heights Community
Our residents genuinely look forward to this program, as our nearest grocery stores are driving distance in different communities. The Farm Stand Program promotes knowledge of local fruits and vegetables, and it encouraged residents to walk to the stand and interact with each other, promoting social cohesiveness. The farm stand allowed seniors in our community who do not drive to have local access to fresh fruit, vegetables, and meat.
Rob Garnett, Centre Manager for Deer Run Community Association
We've had a great response from our community towards the Farm Stand Program. Deer Run does not have a grocery store within its community boundaries, so it's a great benefit to have fresh food available closer to home. It has gained quite a loyal customer base who appreciates the high-quality produce. We're frequently asked why we can't host it more days of the week!
Andrea Trainor, Board Member for University Heights Community Association
The Farm Stand Program really resonated with residents, especially those who are older. The produce is incredibly fresh and very reasonably priced. It is also a gathering place for residents.
