Unity Gardens

Unity Gardens

Unity Gardens Food and Fun Immersion included programs and activities designed to enhance community garden experience and connection with fresh produce.

This program targeted vulnerable aggregates within the area surrounding LaSalle Square Unity Garden, especially the Beacon Heights Apartments community. Increased garden involvement for youth and adults was designed to improve access to fresh produce, and subsequently decrease obesity rates and increase food security long term.

In addition, opportunities for increased physical activity were actively planned, not only with events, but also in the structural plan of the Unity Garden.
