WHAT OUR FAMILIES SAY
“I have Asian neighbors and they grow a lot of things in their front and back yard. Now I can
have conversations and collaborate with them.”
“I attend the classes with my mom and daughter.
Now my kids and I plant seeds in a bed near our home.
My family runs with the dog each night to the garden, and we are spending more time outdoors. We exercise while caring for the plants. My kids enjoy learning about growing plants. We are happy.”
Home Gardening participant, 2018.
“Participating in the program has impacted the way I eat. I got my health back together. I eat better and am able to maintain my weight loss. I am consuming the right kind of food that is filling and I no longer want to snack on unhealthy food.”

"I am a widow, and I don’t have a lot of money. I am always trying to cut costs. The cost of food is going up. Vegetables are costly and I want to eat healthy, but Zucchini would be too expensive for me, but now I grow it. I lived off zucchini for a couple of months. I ate it several times a week".

“I earn extra money to pay bills and buy food. I am paid a small amount seasonally, but it helps my family.”
