Sierra Gardens Program accepting applications

Submitted to The Union

Victoria Chacon and Leo Chapman are part of Sierra Harvest's Sierra Gardens program, which is now accepting applications.

Sierra Harvest's Sierra Gardens program will be hosting an orientation for community members who are interested in building a home garden. The event will be from 10 to 11 a.m. on March 4 at the Sierra Harvest office, 313 Railroad Ave., Suite 201 in Nevada City. Scholarships are available. Sierra Harvest works with each family to build a backyard garden, providing classes, mentoring, and supplies for two years to ensure a successful experience. This is designed to set the stage for a lifetime of home gardening, access to nutritious foods, physical activity and mental health. The goal is to also create a bridge to healthy food choices. Program graduates will have the opportunity to engage as community leaders by mentoring new gardeners. Sierra Harvest's mission is to educate, inspire, and connect Nevada County families to fresh, local, seasonal food.

Attendees are encouraged to fill out an application in advance, however they will also be available at the orientation. RSVP to edy@sierraharvest.org. Applications and more information can be found at https://sierraharvest.org/what-we-do-2/sierra-gardens.
