Community Gardens

Gardens provide access to healthy food and increase access to nutrition and physical activity opportunities. We have two community gardens, 8805 S. Exchange Ave. and 8911 S. Exchange Ave.  Connecting and interacting with nature itself has many health benefits that go beyond improving diet, physical activity, and weight outcomes. CCJD is always looking for families to manage a small garden bed so they can increase access to and consumption of vegetables and as an integral part of overall efforts of local wellness.
