Enjoy the pleasures of produce gardening – healthy food, exercise, fun with your neighbors!

There’s no question about it! We need to produce and consume healthier foods. That’s why groups all over the Delta are partnering with Delta Health Alliance to create a network of community gardens. The Community Gardens project works with local healthcare organizations, civic groups, municipalities, schools, churches, and clinics to provide access to local gardens grown with local volunteers. Residents apply to become garden members through the cities and the community garden committees. Garden members grow their own food in either individual or group garden beds. Members have the option to sell and/or eat what they grow. And we’ve got project staff and master gardeners to provide ongoing training and technical assistance.

The Mississippi Delta has rich soil, long growing seasons and just the right kind of weather to support fresh produce and vegetables for much of the year, and we are taking advantage of it. There are four community gardens up and running – see reverse side – with many more in the planning stages.
