Alternatives for Community and Environment, Inc.'s Fundraiser:

Turn Vacant Lots to Gardens in Roxbury!

Alternatives for Community and Environment, Inc.'s Photo

THE STORY:

Close your eyes and imagine neighborhoods full of gardens instead of vacant lots. Imagine families replacing cheap processed foods with fresh healthy veggies grown next door. Imagine reversing the rise of diabetes and cardiovascular illness.

Now open your eyes.

We, the youth of the Roxbury Environmental Empowerment Project (REEP) at ACE are making this vision a reality!

This spring, we setup two new neighborhood gardens on vacant lots and supported another group to setup a third. That's 30 families in Roxbury growing their own food this summer! And we gave about 4,000 vegetable and herb seedlings to our growing list of gardeners!

Setting up gardens is expensive. We need to raise the money to cover the materials for four community gardens and 4,000 seedlings this growing season. That's about $4,000.

Please help us build this campaign for food justice in Roxbury!
