Through Let’s Grow, Phoenix created and maintained community gardens at three housing centers for low-income residents. Working in partnership with a number of local partners, Phoenix engaged volunteers, including residents of the housing centers, to harvest 1,450 pounds of fresh produce, which was then provided to 210 individuals and families living in the centers. Volunteers have also led educational gardening and cooking and nutrition classes for residents.
