-providing residents with the opportunity to destress, connect with nature and further community bonds-
SBCC’s iHeart Wilmington Community Garden provides fresh produce and plant life to local residents while providing a safe gathering place for community residents to gather and connect with nature and each other.
The garden serves as both a public green space and resource hub for healthy living. This outdoor classroom hosts regularly-scheduled workshops that provide community members with information on how to use green strategies to improve their health. These workshops include interactive activities and guest speakers that share accessible, low-cost, at-home gardening and living tips to families on topics such as:
- The role of fruits and vegetables in a healthy diet
- The importance of oxygen boosting plants for reducing outdoor and indoor air quality
- Sustainable and water-wise planting gardening
- Container gardening strategies
The iHeart Wilmington Community Garden is located at 1306 North Ravenna, Wilmington 90744 and is open to volunteers most Saturdays from 10:00 AM- 2:00 PM.
