Through the generous grant funding from the Chesapeake Bay Trust, the Glenwood Life Center has started a recovery garden. Clients and community members not only have the opportunity to nourish the soil, but the recovery garden helps them nourish the body and soul.
At Glenwood clients are able to access their inner green thumb to carefully tend to the recovery garden. Many studies have sited the benefits to community gardens, especially in areas that are considered food deserts. There is a severe lack of access to fresh foods and vegetables in the area, and often grocery stores are not within walking distance.
For the Community
Clients and staff work together to grow beautiful and fresh produce to share with the neighborhood farmers market.
