  • To provide food for local neighborhood residents
  • To educate about the health effects of eating fresh food
  • To foster an environment that empowers people to create and sustain community gardens
  • To cultivate support for community gardening

The Garden @ Case envisions local neighborhood residents experiencing positive outcomes of community gardening. Its goal as a grassroots approach includes food production and access, as well as educating about making lifestyle changes through healthy eating and cooking.

The Garden @ Case began as a pilot program in which the group could learn and grow from their initial efforts. Short and long term goals include:
  • Encourage a group of diverse volunteers and appreciate the contributions of all
  • Foster an environment of interpersonal relationships, group dynamics (planning, organizing, deciding)
  • Cultivate support through networking, advocacy, and activism

Grow produce to donate to the needy through a food bank, with extra produce available for the volunteers' own use.

The volunteer suggested commitment would be to work a minimum of 2 hrs in a 2-week period, either in the garden itself and/or in garden-related activities (website, fund-raising, communications, etc.).
