Garden Impact - Change of a Lifetime

Over the years, as the garden changed from an idea, to a design, to a place of growth and community, the 6th Ward Garden Park has had a major impact on the lives of those involved in it's development and maintenance. Some have become master gardeners as a result of the awakening in the interest in sustainable agriculture, for others, the garden changed the trajectory of their careers.

Children are experiencing growing, harvesting, and cooking with garden herbs, vegetables, and fruit, giving them a taste for fresh food; they understand exactly where it came from and what it takes to bring food from farm to table. Here are some stories of the impacts of our community garden.
