“A Growing Project”
Building vegetable gardens is a perfect way to get area youth involved with Habitat and the community.
It’s the perfect solution for cultivating both food production for families in need and community.
The Habitat Harvest project will be a work in progress for sustainable gardening. Introduced by Oneida County Habitat for Humanity, Habitat Harvest is about partnering with our area youth in growing neighborhoods and helping families save money while adopting healthy eating habits with inexpensive, homegrown food,”
Habitat Harvest pairs together eager young gardeners with homeowners. When neighbors come together and co-operatively grow food – good things happen.
The Habitat Harvest vision is to help achieve a common goal of providing all citizens with the opportunity for quality and healthy lives. To strive to help low income, disabled and elderly Oneida County residents provide healthy opportunities with fresh home grown produce to maintain healthy lives and families. Habitat Harvest is a youth program – community service project that provides a wonderful compliment to the work that Oneida County Habitat is engaged in to provide simple, decent, affordable housing to our neighbors in need.
