We are Chenchita's Community Garden of East Harlem building a healthy community and increase our growing capacity is our 2017 goal. We are firm believers in doing for the community and self. Gardens make communities viable places of education, interest and motivation. Making each of us aware of our place in the environment and that we are stakeholders in the community. We strive to inform, motivate and inspire in a reciprocal process. Environmental and health education, community engagement, and partnership is an integral part of a stewardship. As we increase our growing capacity we would also like to add food demonstrations for the community in particular people with disabilities, herb workshop for seniors to aid in mitigating their health concerns.
Chenchita’s will have a Youth Farmers Market this summer and we will be at Edible Schoolyard’s Farmstand P.S. 7 Wednesday in East Harlem. The Youth Farmer’s Market is planned for the summer season. Our partners and collaborators are Job Path, Urban Innovation, Cada Paso walking group as well as Revolutionary Fitness in East Harem. Through are collaborators and associates such as NYCHA, Farm School NYC, Just Food and GreenThumb we plan to inreach to the community through flyers, announcements in CB 11 monthly newsletter as well as are social media (meetup.com and Facebook).
why we're doing it
Sharing our cultural traditions through cooking, food demonstrations and preparation of meals in which people of various backgrounds discuss their cultural history with food and cook together. Through this information and exchange of cultural histories and traditions we would bridge cultural differences reflecting on our shared experiences and traditions. We would like to create a cookbook from these shared experiences. Attendees to our herb workshops would go home with herbs from seedlings/transplants from workshops.
