pRoject COMMUnitY-sUppOrted aGriCULtUre—bradentOn, FL UsinG teCHnOLOGY tO pULL a COMMUnitY FOrWard. in bradenton, Florida, there’s a group of people with a never-say-never attitude and a bold idea for community farming: that the community is just as important as the farming. to them, the job is bigger than just growing food; it’s about growing the health of the entire area. Geraldson Community Farm uses the latest sustainable growing methods to produce healthy, safe food for their members and the surrounding area, donating nearly 1000 pounds of excess food to the local food bank last year alone. With GMC’s help, the farm finished installing cisterns for their water retention system and constructing their community barn, both key steps toward accomplishing their goal of a zero carbon footprint. Using the farm as both a working classroom and library, they provide the community with the resources they need to learn about the benefits of locally grown food and the most efficient ways to farm for themselves. So whAt doeS community-SuppoRted AgRicultuRe hAVe to do with gmc engineeRing? it’s using technology to work more efficiently, just like GMC savana. From available dealer-installed WiFi connectivity 1 to your choice of two available wheelbase configurations to the broadest v-8 engine lineup in the segment, savana has the flexibility and capability to match your aspirations and exceed your ambition. it’s what professional-grade engineering is all about: building vehicles that do more than just keep up with today’s world. they set the pace for tomorrow. gmc SAVAnA. this catalog shows many vehicles that have been altered or upfitted with equipment, bodies or components supplied to general motors by an independent supplier. gm is not responsible for the safety or quality of design features, materials or workmanship of any alterations by such a supplier.
