Mission Statement

Description

The College Area Community Garden began 11 years ago, transforming abandoned land into a thriving garden. Through partnerships and dedicated volunteers, we've achieved remarkable progress. Despite COVID-19 challenges, we're determined to advance our mission. We've launched programs like cooperative growing to address food insecurity by utilizing underutilized land. We also provide our produce to food-insecure students and marginalized individuals. Inspiring the next generation, we're developing a 3-week horticulture program for teens, combining volunteering with valuable education from industry leaders. Together, we're making a lasting impact on our community.
