Healthy Living and Gardening
Price Hill Will in collaboration with local non-profits, schools, and the Price Hill Rec Center currently has five community gardens for residents’ use and enjoyment. Each of our gardens gets residents out-of-doors, working together in the soil to grow fresh vegetables that they can take home to share with family and friends, improving nutrition and supplementing diets.
We also strive to create a supportive environment for hands-on learning, experimentation, observation, and life skill development around growing and eating healthy foods, maintaining a natural ecosystem, and living a healthy lifestyle. Each of our gardens offer extra opportunities for engagement, things like recipe swaps, cooking classes, language classes, arts activities or yoga. We are proud of the friendships born out of our gardens, bringing our neighbors together, building bridges between the various socio-economic and cultural groups in our community.
