Gardenwood Community Garden

Gardenwood Community Garden Proposal

1. Mission Statement

Our mission is to strengthen our community by maintaining a community garden that provides a common ground for members to garden together, reduce food costs for members, socialize, provide educational opportunities for program children, and provide a therapeutic activity

2.  Overview and Goals

The community garden will be developed and maintained the Client Committee Group (CCG) which consists of program client participants and their children and other interested parties.  The support provided by the group will ensure the garden’s longevity and sustainability for years to come.  The activity will provide a way for program participants and GSL faith partners to connect and to use the space as a medium for environmental education.  It is proposed to have designated plots for each group member and/or participants to cultivate and grow.  By giving assigned plots, participants will have a more personal investment in the garden, encouraging them to maintain and use the space, provide an activity for sobriety maintenance, harvest healthy food to increase healthy eating habits and lower food costs for recovery families, and provide educational opportunities for program children. 

Primary goals are:

  1.  Make use of available space to grow tasty fruits and vegetables to be shared among gardeners
  2. Lower food costs for recovery families
  3. Growing food for poverty level sober living community clients
  4. Making available healthy alternative to junk food for sober living clients
  5. Provide educational opportunities to program children
  6. Provide socialization and therapy for clients
