Healthy Food, Healthy Communities
Programming includes the Farming for Health project, where community members share ideas on growing vegetables, herbs and medicinal plants to address health and healthy eating. The land trust runs a Free Lunch program at the farm.
Community groups organize healthy eating workshops, cooking sessions and family-tested recipes. Bilingual printed materials include healthy eating recipes and other helpful information provided by the land trust. The city owns the land; the land trust manages the land and community engagement.
