Bridging the Gap: Sustainable Nutrition through Community Revitalization

Fairmont State University

Bridging the Gap: Sustainable Nutrition through Community Revitalization draws upon rural Fairmont State University students' knowledge of gardening, working with partners to revitalize urban located Oliver Park, within walking distance of the school. The proposed project will install community gardens over neglected tennis courts, build a bridge to connect Oliver Park to the City's 5th Street Park, which hosts a summer feeding program. Additionally, this project will provide fresh food donations to the student food pantry, The Nest.
