About

About: Winter Park Health Foundation - Community Gardens

Community gardens are spaces for neighbors to come together and grow wholesome and healthy food for their families. They are places for new gardeners to get their hands dirty, and for seasoned gardeners to pass their knowledge on to newcomers. Community gardens provide a wonderful opportunity for children to learn about how food is grown and to garner an appreciation for where their food comes from. Each garden is self-managed and organizes community events around the garden.

VCI’s part in this opportunity is to facilitate Community Garden grants in conjunction with our partner, the Winter Park Health Foundation. We also organize the sites and place any interested volunteers. VCI’s RSVP program also provides volunteers who are 55+ with a (free!) comprehensive benefits package-CIMA Supplemental insurance, a Life Insurance benefit, free workshops and more! Call your RSVP Coordinator, KelliRobertson, for more information: 407-298-2725, x110 / 407-617-9481.

RSVP, a part of SeniorCorps, is America's largest volunteer network for people 55 and over, with more than 300,000 volunteers tackling tough issues in communities nationwide. RSVP shows you how you can apply the skills and wisdom you've acquired throughout your life to make a positive difference in the lives of others.
