Community Gardens

Gardening is a cost-effective way to encourage more fruit and vegetable consumption. It also brings families, friends and communities together socially. As part of our effort to build a healthier community, we have partnered in the development of the following community gardens:

School Gardens

Research shows that children are more likely to eat fruits and vegetables when they garden. School gardens provide students an opportunity to learn how fruits and vegetables grow, along with the opportunity to sample the produce fresh from the garden. Through the Healthy Students Initiative, the following school gardens were enhanced:

Bella Vista Elementary School GardenBella Vista Elementary
