The UmojaFest Peace Center, located on 24th and Spring, has been a beacon of positivity in the Central District Neighborhood. Now, this Fall, the UPC is revitalizing its urban gardening program with “UPC GROW”, a Community Youth and Family Urban Gardening Project with the intention of creating a learning space to share ideas on how to grow healthy and nutritious food for local families and children.
Join today as a mentor or community member, and help a young person learn some cool ideas about gardening and nutrition! This is part of the UmojaFest PEACE Center’s community outreach work – Transforming Negative Culture to Positive Culture.
The UPC has created a facebook page, be sure to check it out and add yourself!!:
