    Creation of Several Community Gardens

A result of the Syracuse Hunger Project’s ongoing work, Syracuse Grows is an organization which aims to lower food access problems by creating and maintaining community gardens. Community gardens provide gardeners with access to affordable, quality, and culturally appropriate foods which they have grown themselves. They also help beautify the areas they are located in and foster a sense of pride and community. Syracuse Grows conducts annual workshops and hosts dinners to engage community members and educate residents interested in setting up or joining a local garden.

Syracuse Grows is a partner with Syracuse Community Geography. Both are focused on community well-being, and both are able to function because of collaboration with community members.
