Gardening for Healthier Communities

831 E Belmont St., in Ontario
Developing Neighborhood Agriculture Gardening for Healthier Communities April 2018
26 May 09:00

Last month, host Aurthur Levine introduced residents to ways they are reusing organic material from local stores to create compost and plant next years harvest. Participants are building stronger communities by assisting residents who depend on the farm to have continued access to fresh organic produce.

Join us Saturday May 26th at 9:00 AM as we continue this year’s Designing Neighborhood Agriculture (DNA) projects. This time we’ll focus on the team effort that goes into preparing and packaging the organic produce that feeds hundreds of residents in the region.

Gardening for Healthier Communities combines topical conversations, active working sessions, and farming education to highlight the importance and need for fresh organic produce in highly populated urban areas. The Lampkin Foundation has partnered with Huerta Del Valle, a non-profit, to host “A Day of Farming”. If you don’t mind getting your hands dirty, this is the event for you!

Huerta Del Valle‘s goal is to provide all 160,000 people residing in the city of Ontario with accessible organic food. They also endeavor to foster, cultivate, and build stronger relationships within the region.
