Northridge Coop Homes CommUNITY Garden

Our CommUNITY Garden serves the 300 low and moderate income families of Northridge Cooperative Homes in Bayview Hunters Point. We will use our grant to attract more youth to participate in activities to enhance their engagement in the garden, knowledge of urban agriculture and a deeper sense of connection within our community.  Our proposed project wil be to hold two garden events that will be planned with the participation of our youth and directed at encouraging more youth to participate in garden activities and community beautification.  When youth have the opportunity to plan and help direct events and activities they become more engaged in their community, develop team work, increase leadership skills and prepare to become lifelong stewards of sustainable communities.
