The Benefits of Community Gardens
Community gardens provide numerous health benefits, including improved access to food, improved nutrition, increased physical activity and improved mental health.
Community gardens also promote social health and community cohesion by offering a safe and welcoming space for people including socially-disadvantaged communities.
More fun outside and less time on the phone
Many communities do not have access to affordable, healthy produce .
To resolve this, CIOTX has banded together with local business and local organizations to provide a fun filled and educated way to build a community garden.
In many parts of Texas, neighborhood and community gardening is a popular way to eat healthy, connect with one another, and become educated on nature and gardening. But this trend is just starting to pick up with high food prices.
Our community greenhouses have provided a living classroom and get people outdoors again.
