The UCLA chapter of Nourish International focuses on sustainability and eco-conscious community service. This is our second year partnering with a local organization called the Ron Finley Project, which works on turning public tracts of land into community gardens in South Central LA where fresh produce is not readily available, as well as creating job opportunities for local residents.
Ron's "HQ" project is an urban garden in South Central LA that will serve as an example of a well-balanced, fruit-and-veggie oasis. Inspired by the idea of turning unused space such as parkways and vacant lots into fruitful endeavors, this garden and gathering place will be a community hub, where people learn about nutrition and join together to plant, work and unwind. HQ will create a myriad of jobs for local residents, and this plot of land will be a self-sufficient ecosystem of gardening, education, cooking, business learning and management. The community will get their hands dirty together, shovel together, work together and be healthy together.
