We Create Community Inc. was born from the idea that not all needs within our community are one size fits all. So we created a holistic eco-system that covers the primary pillars for a healthy human to thrive and start building a foundation to grow past economic barriers. It is our belief that old school values of taking care of our neighbors is the single biggest remedy for this season in history. Immigrant families have historically been the economic entrepreneurial spark and back-bone of New York city.
ProducePedia is a free resource that covers the types of fresh produce that can be delivered to food pantries. Each entry includes information on color, taste, and possible uses. People unfamiliar with the vegetable or fruit will learn how to use it, and those who are familiar with it still might learn a fun fact or two!
The Cooperative Extension sites have a wealth of information for any backyard gardener. Once you go to the site (each one if very different from the others) look for a link for “homes and gardens”, “landscape”, “consumer horticulture”, etc. to find information on improving your backyard garden. Neighboring state sites may offer information your own state’s site lacks.
