Food is a shared language that builds community.
Through our work in Public Housing Community Gardens we provide opportunities for low income and migrant communities to access healthy, affordable and culturally appropriate food. 
Today we support over 700 gardeners to keep their food culture and traditions alive, making these community gardens a place of cultural sharing and harmony.
