Our community garden serves to empower people through self-sufficient opportunities, allowing our community members to engage in sustainable livelihood and reap the benefits of such resources. The experience that our gardeners, volunteers and community as a whole gain from the community garden is priceless. Benches allow residents, young and old, to sit and enjoy the progress of this garden. Planting with CCCCG allows residents to come out and mingle with each other and produce some wonderful fresh vegetables for summer and fall meals.
The 2016 gardening season was a success and the individual community member’s plots produced wonderful vegetables such as tomatoes, zucchini, beans, potatoes, cabbage and lettuce. Look for the fruit and nut trees that surround our gardens along with the brand new pumpkin patch in the center of the garden plots. Both of these new installments will provide fruit, nuts and pumpkins for the community.
