Healthy Volusia now has funding to increase the number of community gardens and is working with schools and communities to implement community gardens as part of Florida’s Healthiest Weight Initiative. Why community gardens? Community gardens offer the community multiple benefits:
1. Provide health educators with a tool to actively engage the community.
2. Provide the community with an opportunity to eat more vegetables.
3. Bring the community together to improve health.
There are many other reasons to start a community garden. If you are interested in learning more please our office at 386-274-0624.
