The goal of the Windowsill Harvest Project is to teach community members that it’s possible to grow healthy, sustainable foods, even in urban settings! The project also hopes to highlight the Black Hills Farmers Market as a new resource for consistent, fresh foods and recipes that meet budget needs.
