Happy Monday,

I hope everyone is staying warm on this Monday! Amongst the cold, it is always great to discuss outdoor program opportunities for the warmer months ahead. This week’s blog focuses on community gardens. Before the start of spring, it is important to start planning how your department can promote a healthy community.

Following the theme of community gardens, our next Wellness Webinar will be Tuesday, February 9th, hosted by Jill Edwards and Diana McCall, Black Mountain Recreation and Parks. Jill and Diana will be discussing their Eat Smart Black Mountain program. Black Mountain has been extremely successful in creating and maintaining their community gardens and offering healthy eating education. The Eat Smart Black Mountain program works to promote healthy eating and active living through hands-on gardening and nutritious programs. Register for the webinar to learn more how you can impact your community with a garden like Black Mountains:

If you have any then information or ideas on community gardens please email us or submit them on the wellness site here:(,
