Community & School Gardens - Beyond Fresh Food
At Terra Cura, community and school gardens are more than a means to grow fresh food, it is about cultivating healthy communities. Be it world class cities or low-income areas, neighborhoods that need most support are also ones lacking community infrastructure, resource management and funding to invest in detailed and time-intensive site designs. Gardens are quick yet powerful springboards to help individuals experience the process of land and people care. It is also an great medium to learn about food sovereignty and access.
"Food sovereignty - asserts that the people who produce, distribute, and consume food should control the mechanisms and policies of food production and distribution, rather than the corporations and market institutions they believe have come to dominate the global food system."
Our gardens and educational programs integrate edible planting and place-making, creating physical platforms for healthful interactions. In addition, we work closely with our clients to develop affordable site management strategies, eliminating hinderance around long-term maintenance. Combining aesthetics, function and manageability, we transform edible gardens into places for enjoyment and learning.
