WZZM-13 On Your Side visits H.O.P.E. Gardens at Oriole Park Elementary

Our Programming…“helps them to see, now I can be a food grower,” H.O.P.E Gardens Lead Teacher Holly Smith stated during an interview with the WZZM 13 On Your Side television crew last week. “I can have a garden, I can encourage my family to have a garden. We can all grow food. Everybody can.”

Echoing this sentiment, Julie Brunson, Executive Director, contemplated the potential impact of community-wide initiatives: “What could it look like if neighbors started growing food, sharing food, apartment complexes started allowing their residents to grow food and share food among each other in the community?”

This project was funded in whole or part by the USDA’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education through the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and the Michigan Fitness Foundation. This institution is an equal-opportunity employer.
