COMMUNITY GARDENS

Zoe’s Wings Foundation, Inc. sponsored a “Learn, Grow, Eat, Live” Child Care Garden at A New Day Learning Academy.


Zoe’s Wings Foundation, Inc sponsors community gardens to provide space for residents to work together to create beautiful, productive spaces. East Temple is full of vacant lots which could be magnets for crime, however, well-monitored community gardens offer no place for crime to flourish and may reduce crime in the area immediately surrounding the lot.

Per a 2012 study at the University of Pennsylvania greening vacant lots, it reduces the feelings of depressions in city dwellers.*

Lots can be purchased or donated for the cause to bring local gardeners together and involved in our gardens.  The benefits for the community are for them to spend more time outdoors, to interact with each other, make new friends, and experience improvements into a healthy lifestyle by getting them active improving mental and physical health.  

Community gardens built by the youth and young adults in the community providing fresh, safe, affordable herbs, fruits, and vegetables help to relieve stress and increase a sense of wellness.

Alex Capozolo of Brotherly Love Real Estate, shared with me his writeup on Build a Community Garden on Your Vacant Lot . He states “Overall, adding beautiful greenery and fresh food to otherwise unused land can make the morale and pure strength of a community.” **
