The Results will be Amazing

By donating to Fresh Future Farm, you’ll be helping to bring a needed source of fresh healthy food, along with economic development and educational opportunities to one of the longest standing communities in the Charleston area. A certified food desert, the Chicora community has virtually no access to grocery stores or markets. It is the goal of Fresh Future Farm to grow, harvest, teach, sell and improve the health and economic choices within the community. Your donation goes to help us fund our operations in running a successful farm, grocery store and educational programs right here in the community.
