We are creating an accessible community garden on a city-owned vacant lot in Berkeley, California. This garden will serve many of the lower-than-median income families from the immediate and surrounding neighborhoods. The current master plan is also being designed to accommodate raised planters for people with disabilities to garden.
The benefits of this project include strengthening the surrounding community, ensuring food security for those most vulnerable to the vagaries of the current economic downturn, providing nutrition education to neighborhood children so they and their families can learn about growing their own healthy food, and an opportunity for cross-generational and cross-cultural interaction between seniors, kids and others.
