Greening Our Neighborhoods

A Step Towards Safer and Healthier Living


As a non-profit dedicated to healthy and sustainable communities, we know that community gardens play a big role in making our neighborhoods better places to live. Recent research has shown that greening our communities can help reduce violence and promote health, and we're all for it!


Gardens Reduce Violence

Community gardens, like parks, and tree-lined streets, are proven to reduce violence and improve public safety. They provide natural surveillance, bring people together, and create a sense of community ownership, making public spaces safer and more inviting. This can stop violence and crime before they even start, keeping our neighborhoods safer and more secure.


Gardens Improve Health

But that's not all! Community gardens also have amazing health benefits. They help reduce stress, increase physical activity, improve air quality, and provide opportunities for social interaction. Basically, community gardens make our neighborhoods happier and healthier places to be.


Making community gardens a reality takes a little effort from all of us. Investing in green infrastructure, supporting community gardening projects, and volunteering our time are all ways we can help.


Gardens Support Local Economies

And let's not forget the impact on our local economies! Community gardening projects and park improvement projects create jobs for local residents and landscapers, helping boost our neighborhoods even more.


In short, greening our communities is a no-brainer. It makes our neighborhoods safer, healthier, and more vibrant. We're excited to work with governments, businesses, and community organizations to bring community gardens to every neighborhood. Let's make our communities the best they can be!
