Community Gardens

Community Gardens

Rich Delta soil, long growing seasons and temperate weather have made the Mississippi Delta one of America’s largest production areas of commodity crops. Yet, in this agricultural Mecca, many of the area’s poorest residents don’t have access to fresh fruits and vegetables. Often, several miles separate individuals without adequate transportation from grocery stores, leaving limited choices in healthy food options. Therefore, Delta Health Alliance’s Community Garden project works with local healthcare organizations, civic entities, municipalities, schools, churches and clinics to provide sustainable access to nutritious vegetables within these communities.
