World Relief Garden Update!
Last Spring, the 30/30 Project and Construction for Change collaborated with Kent Hillside Church and several other amazing community partners to build the World Relief Refugee Garden in Kent, Washington. The space was converted into the Paradise Parking Plots community garden with 50 plots, where refugees, immigrants, and local community members can gather to grow culturally appropriate foods that promote a healthier lifestyle, improve food access, foster economic independence, and build community. This summer we were really able to see the incredible impact the garden has had on the community, providing a much needed space for interactive nutrition and health education for youth and adults in the Kent community. As you can see, the garden has provided a safe, creative outdoor space for children to come together and play with one another. We look forward to seeing how this space will continue to allow citizens in the community to come together to live healthy, bountiful lives!
