Community Gardens : Providing Fresh Organic Produce
The Women, Infants and Children Program (WIC) community gardens expand upon WIC's mission to provide nutritious foods and education to income-qualifying women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, and children 5 years and under. Currently, we partner with two community gardens in Adams County. The gardens provide access to fresh organic produce, engage families in physical activity and serve as an educational ground for home gardening, and nutrition education. Produce harvested from the garden is given directly to WIC families that participate in the work day. Any produce that remains at the end of the work day is brought back to area WIC clinics and/or donated to a local food pantry.
