Phase 1 involved the redesigning a current community garden space to
become an interactive hub for learning, community building, and growing
vegetables and fruits, especially native and medicinal species.
This space is currently used by a

Elders Lodge and Preschool program.
Phase 2 will involve the installation of
indigenous medical food forest and we'd love your help and support!
