Elizabeth Roesler, The Heart of Lubbock Community Garden

Date grant awarded: May 1, 2016

Partnered with Lubbock United Neighborhood Association, The Heart of Lubbock Community Garden was founded by Elizabeth Roesler in October 2013. The project was strategically placed on the corner of 21st Street and Avenue X in order to best serve the needs of the residents living in the Heart of Lubbock community. This project serves all Lubbock residents but efforts are especially focused on the surrounding low-income families who lack access to affordable nutritionally valued food, stimulating outdoor activity, public green space, community support/unification and environmental education. The community garden teaches future generations how to take care of the environment, their own community and how they can make a difference
