We will continue to provide our garden to the members of Camden, so they can have access to produce without having to travel far. Our organization, Hopeworks, along with volunteers will continue to maintain and support the garden for the residents that want to grow their own food. We also donate all the extras to a local church where they hand it out during their food drives.

We are part of the organization, Hopeworks, a non-profit based in Camden, NJ. The city has had a difficult history but is home to many strong and resilient residents who look to improve their communities. One way that we help Camden is through our community garden, Esperanza Community Garden. The garden was created back in 2011 to help reduce the food scarcity issue in North Camden, which was due to the lack of grocery stores. Because many residents don’t have the kind of yard that would allow them to grow produce, those who wish to can use the plots in the garden to grow their own produce for free. They now have the opportunity to grow and collect free produce, without having to travel far. We also want to provide assistance in the process by helping with removing weeds and watering. Those who do not grow their own produce are still welcome to utilize the plants already in the garden to acquire produce during the warm months of the year. Whatever produce is left is donated to the church across the street for their weekly food drives. We want members of the community to feel welcome in this space.

A group of women will receive a training to plant local trees and grow nutritive vegetables. They will learn how to prepare seedbeds and how to transplant seedlings. They will have a plot of land where they can farm throughout the year. We will start with a small plot and a select group of women first, and the whole project will be coordinated and closely monitored by one of the R&S members, a resident of this township.

Our project allows members in the North Camden community to grow and collect their own produce for free. The remaining food is donated to a local church where they use it in their weekly food drives. This project was created by hardwork and determination from the Camden residents and numerous donations. What was once a vacant lot soon became a vibrant community garden! The garden is now maintained by community members and outside volunteers almost everyday. We want to make sure the garden continues to benefit the neighborhood, which requires constant watering and weeding.

For the third year now, the Tom McCall Roots&Shoots group has planned to take 3 field trips to Nana Cardoon Urban Farm and Learning Center. Our primary objective would be to explore and have “hands on” experience with natural food systems. Nana Cardoon offers a rich environment for developing understanding of plant growth, harvest, processing, preservation, and preparation. A secondary objective would be developing deeper connections to our community and its assets. Expanding our understanding of Forest Grove will help us develop meaningful community projects.

My class has chosen to focus on pollinator awareness. We've started a small apiary in the school and working on increasing public awareness. My students are learning to keep honeybees, extract and bottle honey, and use beeswax to make products. Our current obstacle is to increase the availability of pollinating plants by planting fruit and nut trees in the school park

The project, growing, planting and harvesting will take three months. We have an existing garden and four classes that come in. We'll get the seeds, have the kids plant them and care for them and tend to them, and keep a record of what they see and learn in their garden journals.

The PLAN for the next three years: 2018, 2019, and 2020. Yield of avocados and oranges depends upon climate. Will we or won't we have rain? Because our trees are mature, their roots run deep. Trees do well with 15 minutes of water from two sprinklers once a week. Avocado tree provides seeds that sprout easily. Morning dew collected in rain barrel is used to water seeds. Going forward in 2018, avocado seeds will be sprouted to create plants to donate. Oranges will continue to be harvested and donated.

We would love to have a garden to table cooking club. We would use this mini-grant to purchase classroom cooking materials. We will harvest from our outdoor garden space as well as herbs grown in our classroom. My students have expressed interest in having a before school breakfast cookshop. We have a homeless shelter at our corner, we would love to partner with them and provide needy people with food from our harvest and cooking club.
