Gardens can happen anywhere! For example, some communities have taken abandoned lots or an area on the schoolyard and transformed them into plentiful gardens. These gardens not only allow community members and students to grow their own fruits and vegetables, but also encourage them to learn about the benefits from eating them.

  • Throughout Kern County, school and community gardens have sprung up.
  • 130 teachers have been trained on how to implement a school garden for their students.
  • Community gardens have been established in Bakersfield, Greenfield, and Delano to promote a healthy lifestyle.
