Botanical Community Development Initiatives (BCDI) welcomes volunteers of all ages, skills, abilities and backgrounds. They seek to provide nourishment and education to four preschools. Children will learn about farm supplies, sustainably-grown vegetables, and have a safe place to spend outdoors. The preschools are surrounded by low-income neighborhoods who suffer from a lack of easily accessible fresh food and healthy outdoor activities.
Project Details – Community Build Day.
- You will help to transform the parking lot at Community Roots Farm into a community space parklet! Help to make this transformation by painting, building, decorating, and planting! Make a beautiful and safe green space for everyone to gather. This space will be used for community gatherings, potlucks, classes, cooking, and much more. This project is made possible through a grant from Community Health Improvement Partners and San Diego Health and Human Services Agency. This is a great opportunity to be at the forefront of a locally grown, organic food movement that provides for food-insecure members of our community.
