34th Street Wholistic Gardens & Education Center

The 34th Street Wholistic Gardens & Education Centers mission is to provide access to healthy, affordable food and to educate the surrounding community about health and nutrition. Our mission will also include educating the local community about environmental stewardship on the MS Gulf Coast. The 34th Street Wholistic Gardens & Education Center is comprised of volunteers from communities all over the MS Gulf Coast. Master gardeners, local schools, higher institutes of learning, and residents from diverse communities. The gardens are not only potential outlets for intergenerational learning, but will provide access to foods through neighborhood farmers markets and accessible community gardens. The gardens will be maintained by local residents while giving the opportunity for residents to learn about gardening, other cultures, and the environment. We need the help of folks locally, regionally and nationally to promote our efforts in growing organic gardens and utilizing systems to produce the best foods with the greatest impact on the health and wellbeing of people in our region.
