Our mission: 'HRCG is committed to providing the

Hampton Roads community with an opportunity for individuals and

families to become more self- reliant and aware of the importance of

good nutrition and sustainable lifestyle practices through the

provision of communal gardening and composting, a food- share program,

and youth educational activities. HRGC believes that self-reliance

and education will help individuals and families achieve stability and

improve the well- being of the community.'

We have obtained land in Chesapeake for Site I of the gardening

program, and hope to open more sites throughout the seven cities

soon. The community garden (Site I) will be a combination of

facilities: a communal garden (maintained by volunteers), a set of

individual plots (to be maintaind by patrons upon paying a yearly

fee), a composting project, and a foodshare program wherein community

members and volunteers share the produce from the communal garden,

with a portion being distributed to local food banks.
