Annabel and Eric Khouri have been slowly expanding their urban garden operation for the last several years. Recently, they purchased the parcel at 3608 West 114th Street next door to their current site to expand their operations even further.
Bay Branch Farm came to the City for financial assistance in the amount of a $3,000 grant under the Gardening for Greenbacks Program to partially fund costs to purchase gardening equipment and install an irrigation system at the new site. Their total project cost was $3,600. The project will create one full time job. This is the second grant Bay Branch Farm has received from the City as their operation continues to grow.
