Green Acre Community Garden envisions a just and equitable food system in which local residents have dignified access to nutritious and healthy food, take back control of how food is produced and consumed, and health disparities are eliminated. We envision our city to be a hub for green spaces and hands-on learning opportunities for children with initiatives led by young people. We envision our community to be empowered and enriched through gardening and nutrition education while honoring the ancestral farming traditions of African Americans.
Green Acre Community Garden is an urban farm dedicated to providing nutritious and fresh produce, empowering local residents in Paterson to dismantle food injustices, supporting community-engaged learning opportunities for children, youth, adults, and elders, and creating a green oasis for the broader community.
