Healthy Neighborhood Community Garden

  • Ages: All (minors may require adult accompaniment)
  • Time frame: April – September

The Community Garden is focused on motivating and inspiring the residents of the Second Ward on healthy, cost-effective and innovative ways to grow vegetables, fruits, herbs or flowers right in their own neighborhood. Partnering with local community stakeholders such the Delaware General Health District, and Delaware Master Gardeners, SWCI aims to utilize the community garden as an avenue for bettering the community through providing sustainable access to food supplies for low-income families; thus fostering togetherness, promoting self-empowerment and instilling healthy behaviors.
