Farmstrong seeks help with storage shed

Storefront for Community Design has a call for help to make this dumpy shed into something better:

Farmstrong is an agricultural site in the east end located at 2300 Cool Lane on a property that is privately owned, and serves the community of Armstrong High School, which is located directly to the east of the site.

The site is currently not producing crops, but by spring will have a variety of produce, flowers, and cover crop. The Armstrong Green Team are the primary caretakers of the Farmstrong site. The Green Team, composed of 12 high school students who primarily live in the neighborhood of north Church Hill, Creighton Court, Mosby Court, and Fairfield Court, been working on the site for one year.

On the site sits a shed, which was once a refrigeration unit for a flower vendor on Cool Lane. The shed is functional as a storage area for tools, however, it needs help. It is dark, has the appearance of being full of spiders, and is not the proud shed that the Green Team aspires to use.

I will volunteer to paint it when the repairs are complete. FARMSTRONG is a wonderful idea and I can’t wait to see it grow.
