For our June Community Service event, we will assist Community Services Unlimited (CSU, Inc.) with the gardening of their urban farm, which provides healthy food to underserved communities. You must RSVP to attend.
*Dress for garden work, bring water, snacks, sunblock, and a hat if sensitive to the sun.
“The Growing Healthy program at CSU, Inc. engages youth in urban farming and food based learning as a tool to help them adopt a healthier lifestyle and develop an awareness and political consciousness to the food access and environmental justice issues impacting their communities. The program currently operates at two sites: Normandie Avenue Elementary School and the Expo Center, and the program has a history at John Muir Middle School. We work youth and adults of all ages, from pre-school to seniors. We offer nutrition and gardening education and engage the youth in community research and projects aimed at understanding the food environment and improving access to healthy local food at their schools and in their community.”
