The Garden Project

We're embarking on a new adventure to establish a vegetation garden space at the resource center. The prospective space is around 70’ x 40’ where the blue rubber surface will be reconstructed by adding a layer of composite decking board for smoother transportation. There will be about 25 raised garden beds overall inside and outside the greenhouse, picnic tables and benches, and an irrigation system will be installed using rain barrels to collect precipitation for vegetation maintenance.

Why the Garden Project?

It is important that our youth have the opportunity to grow in every way possible. One main objective of the project includes gaining knowledge about agriculture and the ways they can use it to heal themselves as well as the community around them. This vegetation garden will hold as safe space for members of CHGW’s community with regards to food sovereignty, life skills, personal developement, community companionship, emotional and physical healing.

Our Vision

We are hoping that the garden space will act as a tool of food sovereignty and personal healing for the youth we serve as well as the surrounding community. We hope to establish an agricultural training program for youth and community members to be able to develop sustainable skills of food growth and healthy eating. We would also love to have successfully hold outdoor events for community events like open mics, yoga, and meditation sessions.
