Latham St. Commons

We are building a resilient and sustainable ecosystem of people working together to address all of the factors affecting access to good health—social support, health care, education, diet, employment, air and water quality.

First Set of Deliveries!

Sharing food with another human being is an intimate act that should not be indulged in lightly
— MFK Fisher

Our beautiful wall gardens are no longer just pretty, but these baby greens have sprouted up to be friendly reminders to the people in the community that there is plenty to share! Friday was our first exploration into the surrounding community of Latham Street and as the team geared up greens in mason jars we were able to meet friendly members of Garfield and Friendship who could share the excitement of our first harvest. With a small note carefully hand written from our first Mash-Up event, the greens were delivered to houses in both Garfield as well as Friendship. What a beautiful thing it is, to see and share with the people around the community!

"Grandma" Williams was so touched when Jackie and I walked up to her porch with a small delivery of freshly grown greens. She gave us heartfelt hugs as we explained how to use these tasty treats for her and her grandchildren.

The first batch of 5 deliveries we made this past Friday! More outreach to come throughout the summer as we explore the neighborhood and beautiful members of it!
