When we think about the problems currently facing society, it is easy to become overwhelmed and disempowered. Creating community gardens that bring back the wild foods of the local habitat (herbs, mushrooms, berries, and nuts) and weaving them with the fruits and vegetables is a tangible way to be a part of the solution.
Nourishing Community Herb Gardens Project
|When we consider global crises it is easy to feel overwhelmed and become disempowered. Creating community gardens that bring back medicinal herbs alongside wild foods of the local habitat is a tangible way to be a part of the solution. As we grow gardens we grow community. Our Nourishing Community Herb Gardens Project highlights unique community gardens that include medicinal herbs as a sustainable and educational resource, helping individuals and communities thrive. We support growing herbs as well as food as we know health is a social and racial justice issue, and healthy foods and herbs are a part of reaching underserved communities without access to fresh food. |
