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.
