Local Community Gardens are Looking for Gardeners!

There can be many purposes to a community garden.  Gardens can be used for education, recreational, mental and physical rehabilitation, and provide access to healthy foods.  Gardens can bring a sense of community cohesiveness and provide opportunities for neighborhood improvement. 

Healthy Community Design: Making the Healthy Choice the Easy Choice

Your zip code can impact your life expectancy and how healthy you are more than your genetic code. The physical design of a community can affect your physical and mental health. It’s not always easy to get exercise if you don’t have sidewalks in your neighborhood or live close to a park or trail. It’s not always easy to eat right if you don’t live close to a grocery store or can’t afford to buy fresh fruits and vegetables at the farmers market.
