Zoe’s Wings is committed to community pride and unity, teaching methods to preserve open spaces and native habitats for children and families. While encouraging sustainable living techniques and recycling, we honor diverse abilities, ages, and cultures. All gardeners welcome!” We are reaching out into the community to help agencies wishing to teach children and families at their facilities. Zoe’s Wings provides a place for neighbors to meet and share a common interest in organic gardening and provide healthy food for their family and friends; supply community members with the knowledge they need to garden organically in any situation. You will see a community garden in each of our affordable developments. Our program works with centers in impoverished areas that are considered food deserts. The majority of the children’s family receives financial assistance for home and childcare.
