Funded by The California Endowment, the We Diggit Urban Gardens Program will build no cost gardens for residents in the Building Healthy Communities Area (see map). These may include raised garden beds, in-ground gardens or container gardening for residents in apartments or with limited space.
In addition to a garden, program recipients will be supplied with education, tools, and resources to ensure a successful harvest.
When residents are supported with education and tools needed to grow their own food, they become healthier by eating more vegetables, increased physical activity by working in the garden, and they save money by reducing their food bill.
With a single seed, not much bigger than the period at the end of this sentence, we will rebuild, restore, and repair our communities to a healthier place and well-being. There are a limited amount of gardens available so act quickly!
