Our Work is Dedicated to Food Access

Broad Rock Community Garden is an example of community-led neighborhood transformation! The once vacant lot now features permeable pathways, rainwater harvesting, raised beds, pergolas, compost bins, dozens of fruit trees, murals, and community gathering space. Community members use the space for cookouts, meditation, yoga, and event Christmas giveaways.  We look forward to you joining us as we exemplify the change we want to see!

THERE ARE SO MANY BENEFITS OF COMMUNITY GARDENS

Greenspace adds so much value to neighborhoods

Let’s take neighborhood improvement for instance. Community gardens have the capacity to increase property values of surrounding buildings and homes. Communities can grow closer via working in the gardens and associated farmers’ markets that may accompany them. Green spaces increase feelings of safety and build ties within the community. Community gardens provide excellent learning environments for children and young adults allowing for intergenerational and cross-cultural dialogue.

Community gardens have to power to evoke social change by reducing health and economic disparities for low-income communities through the food grown at them.

Community Gardens Provide a Focus Point for Community Activity

 The development and maintenance of the site with input and collaboration from the community it is located can build long-lasting nurturing relationships for everybody. All at the same time we are helping the planet and reducing our reliance on hazardous large scale industrial agriculture and reconnecting with the Earth in a sustainable way.
