It isn’t new knowledge that poverty and lack of access to healthy foods are the leading causes for our country’s health issues. Our families need access to healthier foods and improved nutritional education. Let’s eradicate food deserts, provide nutritional education and improve the health of our families at the same time!
“…our grandparents, they had community gardens; there was the vegetable man that came around. There were many other resources that allowed them to have access. So it's not that people don't know or don't want to do the right thing; they just have to have access to the foods that they know will make their families healthier.”
Michelle Obama, First Lady of the United States

Thanks to the generous donation of 2 acres of land and water from the Housing Authority of the County of Contra Costa, we are able to begin developing our Community Garden.
