Quincy Community Garden

The mission of the garden is to get residents of this community that is noted for its high rates of preventable diseases - engaged in developing a more plant based diet and to encourage a more active lifestyle through the processes involved in raising food. We have a mix of volunteers from a 5yr. old, to gardeners in their 80s. Our focus for 2015 will be fruits and vegetables that offer antioxidant protection that fights cancer. We are also seeking support for the healing garden we are constructing adjacent to our kitchen garden. The healing garden will feature plants that have known healing and restorative properties, along with a water feature and meditation/reflection area.
