Volunteers came together from the local community joining young adults in the Americorps Vista volunteer program for a special summer season of service. They learned about community gardening, permaculture practices, and water systems in the Pacific Northwest. Then they began putting insights and lessons into practice at a few initial sites of Sabin CDC. It was rewarding. Now we would like to build further on this great start.
As a part of the Sabin’s focus on equity and environmental justice, our organization is committed to creating space for our residents to actively participate in making their neighborhood a more sustainable place for the benefit of all. Sabin CDC is intentionally prioritizing our residents’ health and sense of belonging by adding new pollinator and vegetable gardens to the grounds of six of our existing properties and to the rooftops of two new buildings that arescheduled to break ground in 2021. Because green spaces have been correlated with improved mood, decreased stress, and an increased sense of belonging in neighborhoods nationwide, benefits are far reaching and will improve both our ecological impact and our residents’ access to fresh food.
