Gardener Links to Empower our Neighborhood (GLEN) Program

The GLEN program through Historic Westside Gardens will support residents in English Avenue and Vine City who have an interest in gardening at home. Targeting a population facing income and food security issues, the project operates under a model of increasing community cohesion, vitality and resilience through food. The participants will choose what to grow and work in partnership with their neighbors to maintain and develop their gardens. A long-term goals is to create a network of home farmers who can sell their surplus through a community-based enterprise.
