Nutrition education

The 6th Ward Garden Park is a wonderful place to incorporate nutrition education with hands-on learning and fun!  One of our goals is to create a healthier community by increasing access to nutritious foods, so if you have a passion for nutrition, we would love to have you host a workshop or class at the park.

 Amy thanks the volunteers and gives instructions for the day's work.
