Many people these days are having a hard time making ends meet. The first necessity in the life that gets compromised by cutting corners is food. These days, people's one option for cheap food is unhealthy food. The Jubilee Garden gives people the opportunity to learn a new way of feeding themselves. The Jubilee Garden is a place where people can pick their own fresh vegetables, learn how to garden by working along side volunteers, and become empowered to take care of themselves and contribute to community economics that is based on teamwork and cooperation.
This project is done in conjunction with the Radical Mission food pantry. The food pantry's main purpose is to provide relief for the person's dietary needs. When a person comes to the pantry in need of food, they are asked to come to the garden where they are welcome to take what ever fresh vegetables they need. Since the garden is always producing food, people are encouraged to come as often as needed and take enough food to last till the next time they come back. The person is also encouraged to help in the garden and learn agricultural skills.
KGI is a nonprofit community of over 30,000 people who are growing some of our own food and helping others to do the same.
