About this idea
Our idea is promote healthy living—healthy life styles by mixing a u-pick with a 18 basket disc golf course on a 27 acre space. We have the course in and building the u-pick into the layout. Finding smart ways to use this to fit this layout for multiple uses and meeting the customer base needs.
Impact
Impact is a healthy experience in nature with the opportunity at the course and picking berries with the health benefits such as antioxidants and cancer preventing nutrients. Allowing people be educated to understand the value of organic healthy snack choices. Over 1.6 million visitors visit Silver Lake state park we are 4 miles from the entrance and I believe provide our farm to be a showcase classroom for our customers and our community.
What I'll do with $5,000
We will invest all $5,000 into water irrigation system. This smart technology will allow the farm to increase crop production and decrease agricultural waste. Allowing us to maximize the space for its full crop production potential. We believe as space to grow is reduced for most people this farm will become a showcase on how to grow even in a smaller space. Allowing for the conversation to our tourist guests on what they can do at home to provide home garden and food source growing in the communities they are in.
