Community Garden Program

CARE is seeking two summer interns for its Community Garden project. CARE and the Office of Sustainability are partnering with New Haven Farms to expand its community garden, currently coordinated through the Office of Sustainability, and will host New Haven residents to grow food and learn about health and wellness. In this first year, CARE will pilot a health and wellness summer program with residents from neighborhoods adjacent to SCSU. Families will be invited to the garden for weekly cooking demonstrations, nutrition classes, and gardening seminars during July and August. Participants will take home a share of fresh produce each week, along with sets of culturally relevant, affordable, and nutritious recipes. The modified Farm-Based Wellness Program will serve 7-10 New Haven families.
