Establishing a Nazareth Community Garden
As the team behind From The Ground Up once said within their own petition "community gardens transform neighborhoods and as the pandemic exacerbated long-standing racial and economic disparities, community gardeners mobilized to support their neighbors by increasing food production and distributing fresh fruits and vegetables to those in need. The pandemic attracted new attention to the benefits provided by community gardens, but these benefits are not new; community gardens have strengthened their neighborhoods for decades." A group of Nazareth students, faculty, and staff is working on establishing a permanent Community garden at Nazareth college. By establishing our own Community garden, Nazareth College can engage in innovative ways to strengthen our own community, provide new solutions to students struggling with food insecurity and become a new resource to motivate students, staff, faculty research, collaborations, active engagements, and social justice initiatives.
This petition has been started with the goal of getting as many signatures as possible to show that the student body at Nazareth College supports the establishment of a permanent community garden. Please, consider signing this petition and forwarding it to others so we can make this dream a reality. If you are particularly interested in this initiative, please, send me an email so I can keep you posted as this initiative moves forward.
