Your supports growth and healing in the garden.

At City Schoolyard Garden, youth plant gardens and grow connections, autonomy, happiness, competence, health, equity and confidence.

At City Schoolyard Garden, we know we don’t stand alone with in our vision, values or motivation to build a healthy and just food system. We value partnerships. The journey of healing our community food system through partnerships is making just efforts to combine our heads, hearts and hands, alongside the children, youth and parents with whom we have cultivated lands and nourished homes. This is the power of the Charlottesville Food Justice Network.
