Grant To Help Learning Disabled Man Build Hydroponic Gardening Business

by Bruce Chinnery
(Kingston, Ontario, Canada)

I'm 44 years old and I'm single. I live in Kingston, Ontario, Canada.

I have one sister. My mom and dad have passed away due to cancer

Disability Issues

I have been diagnosed with a learning disability. That is why I'm on ODSP (Ontario Disability Support Program).

Financial Hardship

I get $1083.72 per month and I pay out

- mortgage about $480
- phone and TV about $120
- hydro power about $100
- bus pass $45
- Internet $35
- food $200

That leaves me with about $100 per month. As you can see I'm just getting by.

Income Efforts

I have been learning about computers at home and a friend has been helping me learn.

I can't get a job because I'm a slow learner and can't keep up with everyone else.

I would like to work and then I saw a video that would be great for me but I don't know how to go about doing it on my income.

Specific Needs

I am looking for a grant that I read about other people getting.

It would be great to start a small business. I wont be alone; I'll have my two friends to help me.

Business Idea

Here's the video I saw that gave me an idea for a hydroponic gardening home business:

It sounds great, but it doesn't include things like:
- actual plans to build a unit
- rent and power
- permits that I will need
- lights and other stuff

"Space Saver"
by: Angelika Coursey

A hydroponic garden is thought of to be a “space saver” garden, because you’re ready to produce a beautiful backyard in simply a third of the space required of an outside backyard. Nevertheless to be productive the max value has the quality of water utilized. And water filtered by some filters or water softeners will give additional life to the garden, and a gratification to look at a day by day growing green corner!
