Dudley Grows added an event.

We have the power to make our neighborhood a vibrant, healthy, safe zone for our families and the next generation, and we are building community strength around healthy eating, growing, and living in Dudley. Dudley Grows is a vision that residents came together to design. Our key priorities are: - Building a resident-owned supply chain for great food in the neighborhood, to capture and build wealth here; - Permanently securing vacant land for growing, so any resident who wants to grow their own food can do so; and - Improving the food in schools, so young people are well-nourished with food they enjoy. Your voice and leadership in this work is important! We'll share dinner from 5:30-6 PM and meet from 6-7:30 PM. Questions? Contact Lanise at DSNI: lfrazier@dsni.org.
