The Urban Garden Project is a Well House initiative with a threefold mission to grow food on Well House properties in order to provide produce for tenants, increase accessibility to fresh foods for neighbors and for sale at Well House farmers market and local restaurants. The farmers market is on Thursdays and begins in July.  

The Urban Garden Project operates under a food justice ethos that advocates access to healthy food as a basic human right. 

The Rapidian, a program of the 501(c)3 nonprofit Community Media Center, relies on the community’s support to help cover the cost of training reporters and publishing content.
