The Problem

Garden children, members, and neighbors will become aware of the food need in their community. Hopefully they will begin to shift the paradigm of community gardens from being just a pretty respite place to being a place where people can raise food for their community.

Our Plan

Children will contribute to educating their neighbors by researching where there is free and low cost nutritional food, distribute tri- lingual nutritional information, and raise greens for the local food pantry. They will also compile healthy cultural recipes, stir fry veggies, and distribute free samples to visitors to our popular community garden. They will also distribute multilingual info on using foodstamps at local greenmarkets, and support a local low cost CSA by purchasing food bags to use as ingredients for their recipes.
