Wangari Gardens is a new 2.7 acre garden park built by its surrounding neighborhood in the heart of Washington, DC. As a very diverse, friendly, and community oriented neighborhood, this area of the city suffers from high obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and malnutrition, especially among children. There are few grocery options available, and many residents rely on corner stores which sell little amounts of fresh produce or healthy food.
Neighbors have come together to reclaim a largely unused green space and transform it into a garden and park that will help connect the community through growing healthy food.
