Our Vision & Mission

VISION: Foster sustainability of urban community and natural environment

MISSION: Strengthen our local urban community, encourage environmental
sustainability, expand healthy eating choices, promote life-long learning, and
vitalize an underused public green space.

To achieve these mission goals, we propose to:

  • Work with others committed to building healthy and active communities.
  • Develop partnerships and networks with community, public and private
    sectors, and government.
  • Be well-governed, effectively managed, and a sustainable not-for-profit
    community organization.
  • Use best practice organic gardening techniques for our local environment
  • Seek the advice and instruction of City and County experts to learn and
    update knowledge of best practices
  • Promote community access to and learning about fresh nutritious food
  • Encourage intergenerational and intercultural learning and cooperation

“If you’ve never experienced the joy of accomplishing more than you can imagine, plant a garden.”
