Community Gardens

TCAA supports two community gardens, Escalante and Clark Park, to build community through the production of high quality, organic fruits and vegetables.  Community gardens offer opportunities to teach our neighbors about sustainable gardening and healthy cooking. The formation of these gardens resulted from neighborhood-led efforts to increase access to fresh produce in areas identified by the USDA as food deserts. The gardens were designed with input and support from the respective neighborhoods as places where children can learn about nutrition and where food comes from, seniors can socialize together through gardening and cooking demonstrations, families can learn about healthy eating and gardening, and entire neighborhoods can have a place to gather and cultivate new relationships.
