By partnering with churches, schools, and community centers (organizations) in the Atlanta corridor and surrounding areas, Project G.R.A.P.E will use the land made available by the churches and schools involved in order to grow, teach, and serve the community. Project G.R.A.P.E. will focus on educating communities by teaching the need and importance of gardening and self-sustained living. While recruiting volunteers, Project G.R.A.P.E. will host weekend events where our participants will learn about gardening. Topics that will be discussed during these weekend events will include but are not limited to, gardening with green limited space, growing produce through re-planting and composting. These weekend events will not only help teach a new generation of people how to grow their own food, but these youth that participate will be able to spread this knowledge to people in their lives. Project G.R.A.P.E. will be able to engage new generation with bold, fun techniques while also teaching them life-long skills that will potentially end childhood hunger.

Our campus is considered a living campus where food is cultivated and nutrition is a key element of the program. We believe in educating the whole child and teaching our students the importance of learning where your food comes from is a priority. Our GA 8th-grade students want to share that message by holding a community farmers market introducing our surrounding neighbors to a new parkway garden that we will plant around the school's southern perimeter for the community to have fresh whole fruits and vegetables. Students will clear the space and amend the soil during their GA classes. There will be one workday with community members to plant the gardens. On the day the gardens are introduced to the community, students will hold a community farmer market. We will place flyers on the doors of the neighbors directly surrounding our school site to invite them to the market.

Students will use mathematical knowledge, in measurement, ratio, and geometry to design and build their own vertical gardens. In addition, they will address 6th grades standards of Engineering and Design and Materials and Tools. Furthermore, the vertical gardens will provide exposure to alternate food production options to our students and family while simultaneously producing crops for the school to use in the cafeteria and farmer’s market.

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.
