People in New Town said they just don’t have many resources for healthy living. That’s why, a community garden through Urban Geoponics is hoping to change that by providing healthy food that are affordable.
The garden is located at the Urban Farm at 3rd and Pearce streets in New Town.
“We have lemon trees, cocktail, broccoli, cauliflower trees…” said Urban Farm CEO Diallo Sekou.
Families unable to shop at a grocery store can get fresh fruits and veggies at a good price. There’s even an outdoor kitchen to teach better cooking.
