The Cullowhee Community Garden was identified by the Healthy Eating and Physical Activity
Action Team as a program that, when combined with other actions in our
community, has a reasonable chance of making a difference in healthy food consumption as well as weight status in our community. The audience for this strategy is the community at large. This
strategy aims to make a difference at the individual level-- increasing
knowledge and influence on individual attitudes and beliefs towards health.
Implementation will take place community-wide in Jackson County.
The Cullowhee Community Garden is a project of the Jackson County Department of Public Health. The garden provides space, tools, and materials for community members to grow produce organically. Each gardener agrees to donate one half of the produce grown in their plot to help our community food relief programs. There is no monetary fee for joining the garden, only the 50% donation.
