Project Rainfall

BY RITA HUBBARD-ROBINSON, JD
@ VOL 19 ON MAR 14, 2018

"We can do it. We can change the world."

In Project Rainfall from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 19, CEO of NeuWater & Associates, LLC, Rita Hubbard-Robinson, talks about the development of an urban aquaponics farm and farmer’s market on Buffalo's East Side. The project is being proposed in an area of the city that is considered a food desert, void of fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole foods due to lack of easily accessible grocery stores or farmer’s markets. Project Rainfall's priorities are to improve the health of a disenfranchised community through access to fresh food and education.
