Project REBUILD is a non-profit agency that re-engages at-risk youth to complete a high school diploma or GED and acquire marketable skills in construction technologies through the rehabilitation or construction of affordable housing.
Project REBUILD is once again partnering with the Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce to involve the Canton Community Garden located on Fifth St. NW, (just east of Shorb Ave) in an educational, healthy foods project. Along with Project REBUILD student’s responsibility of planting, maintaining and harvesting produce from that garden location (it is one block from our facility), we will also be responsible for the entire operation of the garden, acting as the garden coordinator. We plan to use the gardening opportunity to educate Project REBUILD students and Summit neighborhood youth on the health benefits of fresh produce and the positive environmental impact of growing and consuming local foods. We also plan to make outreach efforts into the neighborhood by building a community bulletin board at the garden to let residents know of healthy eating/growing educational programs that are available. Additionally, we hope to harvest enough produce so that the youth involved in this project can donate some produce to the food bank and/or other community food resource centers in Canton. We plan to involve 10 students and 20 neighborhood youth in this program.
