Gardening for Healthier Communities

Gardening for Healthier Communities

By admin on May 26, 2018

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.

The weather was HOT; but you were COOL about it. Last Saturday, 17 volunteers joined D’Andre Lampkin in Ontario, California for the Gardening for Healthier Communities event. We’re still tallying up the numbers but so far we discovered you were able to provide 13 families with a week worth of fresh organic produce in the 1 hour you spent harvesting in the garden.
