Community Garden Thrives Through Orlando Cafe Program

(Florida)

Community Garden - CAFE ProgramWith the help of Devereux Kids, members of Orlando’s Holden Heights neighborhood are sowing the seeds of nutrition, community and healthy families. When a community garden was established at Grand Avenue Elementary through the Child Advancement/Family Empowerment (CAFE) Program, everyone knew the harvest would include wholesome vegetables and good times shared among neighbors. But in addition to the sweet onions, carrots and variety of greens, the garden has given Grand Avenue students a place to learn about nature, healthy eating and responsibility. The garden even provides a place for teachers to bring students to “chill out” during stressful times. The garden is a welcome addition to the many services CAFE provides, including family and parenting resources, healthy lifestyle counseling, sexual abuse prevention and more.
