The Problem

The community we serve is of a low to median income area and could use better access to fresh fruits and vegetables. Our City has a larger grocery store but it is not easily accessible to residents that live in the center of town and don't have vehicles, or must only use public transportation. A smaller discount grocery store is closer to downtown, but doesn't offer a large variety of fresh items.

Our Plan

Our department would like to provide a community garden on our back patio. We have done gardens in the past, but were only able to offer smaller pots with plantings.
