Next week is Pathlight HOME's Community Garden Building Day at our Maxwell Terrace Apartment complex with The Hive Orlando and the UF IFAS Extension Family Nutrition Program on Saturday, January 27th!
The event is getting close so take a good look at the before photos- it won't look like this for much longer!
We can't wait to share the AFTER shots. We are so pumped for the transformation that will be taking place in this area and know our residents are even more excited for this awesome opportunity to grow their own fruits and veggies.
Thank you again to our amazing partners- The Hive Orlando and the UF IFAS Extension Family Nutrition Program! This wouldn't be possible without the organization, passion, and drive you have shown to the local community and Pathlight HOME.
- 'The Hive' is a community initiative of IDEAS For Us, a 501c3 nonprofit organization. The Hive is a multi-generational, interdisciplinary group that exists in communities for the purpose of organizing stakeholders for action projects. On the last Saturday of each month, The Hive Orlando gathers to implement action projects designed to create a local impact towards the achievement of the Global Goals, which they call Umuganda. Umuganda means "Coming together for a common purpose."
