Learning How to Grow and Eat Veggies

The De la Cruz family has been living in Dove Springs for 15 years. When they first learned about the Urban Organics community garden, they were excited. “We thought it opened new doors to learning how to grow food and learning how to eat healthy,” says Jessica (left, next to her mom).

“Having the kids plant their own vegetables was a good way for getting them – and us – to try new vegetables!” she adds. Being part of a community garden is a way for them to access fresh, organic veggies for free. It’s also helped them become more physically active and spend time together as a family – kids, parents and grandparents!
