MOCAT partnered with the In-Phase Clinic on Hurd Street to create an edible community garden. The project will be continuing and relocating in 2023.
Goals of the Project
Renew our connection to nature.
Produce fresh, wholesome, nutritious food to share with community members.
Encourage healthy outdoor activity, positive social interaction, and the use of open space.
Healthy eating, lower food costs.
Community resilience if faced with food shortages or a large-scale emergency.
The activities related to the creation of the garden build a sense of community, ease social isolation, provide opportunities for community celebrations (seed exchange, planting parties, harvest), and create a space for art-making and sharing and developing relationships.
Participants working on the communal garden include peers that share in responsibilities for planting, weeding, watering, and general maintenance of the garden.
