Peachtree Farm breaking ground later this month
Construction will begin later this month on Peachtree Farm, a hydroponic farm on Research Court where people with disabilities can find meaningful employment and lead more independent lives.

A groundbreaking event is slated for Saturday, Oct. 23.
Mike Twiner, president of Peachtree Farm, said
the organization will construct five hydroponic facilities over the next few years.
The organization plans to grow and sell produce locally, starting with tomatoes. After the farm is up and running, the organization plans to construct 15 cottages that will allow people to live safely on the farm.
The idea for Peachtree Farm stems from the Twiner family’s experience. As a family with an adult with disabilities, creating inclusive and accessible spaces has always been at the core of its engagement with the community, Twiner said. To learn more or make a charitable contribution, CLICK HERE.
