The Community Learning Garden educates, inspires and connects with a focus on producing food and herbs with environmentally sustainable, accessible means. We help grow regional awareness of the importance and benefits of locally, sustainably produced food. We encourage people to regionally source and grow their own food and teach about how-to's and the benefits, including health, economic and environmental.
