Uniting a community in Northeast Baltimore through gardening

Hamilton Crop Circle is seeking seed money to help our various projects grow!

Some money will be allocated to developing worm composting systems other funds will be allocated to building greenhouses for year round produce production. Our projects will become sustainable economic engines thanks to start up funds.

Local Composting Program:
Hamilton Crop Circle works with area restaurants to collect compostable materials at no charge, reducing waste, while creating natural fertilizer.

Roof Top Gardening:
HCC is developing a system of rooftop gardening projects in the industrial and mercantile sectors throughout Baltimore City to produce locally grown food.

Feeding the hungry :
Recognizing the need to provide fresh food to Baltimore's needy HCC has forged a partnership between Our Daily Bread and the Baltimore Farmers Market to donate fresh foods weekly.

Educational Growth:
By developing microfarms at area schools, HCC is educating young people about where food comes from, and how to grow it. The gardens are ideally watered by the school's rooftop cistern. The vegetables find their way to the cafeteria and the science room.

if you get a chance please visit hamiltoncropcircle.blogspot.com and take a look at what we are doing in Baltimore! then check out hamiltoncropcircle on you tube please!

We are very excited about the kickstarter program and are really prepared to continue our projects in Baltimore but need some help with funding in order to grow! we are applying for and have received some small grants for help with some of our projects. In order to grow to our potential,we need to really go for some kickstarter help. We've got some time under our belt and know where we can best apply funds to continue to grow and help others as much as humanly possible. We are fully commited to the cause of creating a better , fresher, more local,organic,affordable,even donated source of food along with educating our city and all those in need !

We need help in order to keep helping others! please consider backing HCC as we will honor and complete our promise to all that pledge their help!
