The Problem

Our wish if for our G.O.A.L.S. Inc. youth to be able to cultivate sustainable crops that will beneficial to them and the communities they live in. G.O.A.L.S. Inc. would like to use these gardens to combat food deserts in the communities that our youth reside in.

Our Plan

Our project proposes the cultivation of fruits and vegetables that our youth and community members will be able to benefit from. Our youth will take part in the construction and continued maintenance of this fruit and vegetable garden. Monthly, our youth and members of the community that we serve will have the opportunity to access the garden's fruit and vegetables. There will be regular cooking classes offered to our youth that incorporate fruits and vegetables grown in the garden.
