HUDA Urban Garden Healthy Living Education Center
This program is a continuation of a prior Ford C3 grant program. This phase will combat the negative health effects of poor food choices, poverty and neighborhood blight in the community.
This holistic approach to better health includes active lifestyles, healthy diets and sustainable practices. A fitness walking station will incorporate garden tasks, activities for bending, stretching with signage and videos. The clinic provides free health care services. The garden expansion from three acres to six acres increases the food and services for more than 1500 families.
The program will continue through the garden program. Additionally, the WSU service learning program will continue to offer undergraduate students the opportunity to work with community leaders and the garden.
