Monarch receives $30,000 for community garden initiative

Monarch GardenMonarch has recently received a $30,000 award from the Harold H. Bate Foundation, Inc. for a community garden initiative in Craven County. The grant will be used to help enhance the Monarch Ability Garden Integrating Community and Land (M.A.G.I.C.A.L.) initiative. The community garden – one of three that Monarch will develop across the state – was designed to provide a place for people to gather and learn about sustainable gardening and access locally grown healthy foods.

The project was designed to help increase physical activity through gardening and the benefits obtained from improved nutrition with a series of educational seminars highlighting health and nutrition that will be available on site. Most importantly, the garden is a way to build community and inclusion. To read more, click here.
