Raised Beds Help Raise Healthy Communities

Power in Community Gardens

Situated in between a bike trail and a school yard, or on the extended property of a church are community gardens, neighborhood treasures often overlooked by residents.

Food Well Alliance recognizes community gardens as a place full of opportunities for all communities. Seniors have a place to be active, kids increase their appreciation for fresh foods, neighbors convene frequently and communities work together to increase goodwill.

In March, Food Well Alliance announced the recipients of the Community & Educational Garden Grant, and this month we are highlighting our grantees onwww.foodwellalliance.org.

We hope their great work will provide examples for other individuals and organizations to leverage community gardening to build greater connections and healthier lives.

Be sure to learn more about the grantees' efforts to transform lives and build healthier communities!
