Garden Champion!

A $100 contribution will help support an ongoing stipend and training program for low-income residents who are coordinating the garden project.
Our project focuses on individual, community and environmental health by engaging low-income residents in changing their food environment, expanding and then changing their options for food consumption, improving their community, and creating therapeutic shared space.  

In addition to the rooftop garden shown in the video above, we will be creating new gardens and expanding the garden teams throughout the community.  

In a community with ZERO grocery stores and limited access to other food outlets, community gardening is a means for residents to take control over spaces, food choices, and their own health.
