Our Gardens Grow

20131024_152156We distribute food to over 200 families every Monday morning. Now some of our clients who also volunteer with the food distribution, will start growing their own vegetables. The Women’s Building Immigrant Food Assistance Program has expanded to include garden plots at nearby Kid Power Park. 20131114_125702The garden space is tiny but volunteers have started off with split peas, collards, carrots, beets and spinach. While we are in the beginning stages of this project, we are looking for innovative ways to325 collaborate with locals urban farmers and organizations to create a unique program for our clients to support self-sufficiency. We’ve been inspired by Tree’s Free Farm Stands in the neighborhood, community gardens and 18 Reason’s food education.  What ideas do you have for us?  Want to help?  Contact Acacia@womensbuilding.org
