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 D’Andre D. Lampkin Foundation would like to thank all of our volunteers for their recent contribution of time to the Ontario Arbor Day Celebration on March 10, 2018. This event could not have been a success without their dedication and hard work. Despite the rain, Lampkin Foundation volunteers were able to help plant 165 trees throughout Ontario, California.

We are happy to report more than 40 Ontario residents, students, and community shareholders came to support Inland Empire Resource Conservation District and CIRCLE 2.0‘s larger effort to plant over 1650 trees across California and Ontario’s effort to reduce and limit carbon emissions.

Thanks to volunteers, supporters, and stakeholders, the city of Ontario is well on it’s way to retaining it’s status as a “Tree City USA“. Furthermore, many homes will benefit from the developing shade and carbon emissions are being reduced.

On August 29, 2017 – the twelve year anniversary the levees broke in Louisiana following landfall of Hurricane Katrina, we announced efforts to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Coincidentally, the levees began to break around Houston, Texas as flood waters crippled the regions infrastructure and rescue efforts were underway. The decision to create a disaster relief fund received overwhelming support from Foundation supporters. Especially since, 100% of donations have been committed to recovery efforts.
