Our Purpose

The purpose of the Parkside Community Garden is to create a safe, fun, and healthy community garden space in a food desert. This garden will allow residents and community members to access healthy and affordable, freshly grown food. The main focus of this group in 2018, is to create a Community Garden space at a city owned field next to Parkside Middle School on the West Side of Manchester, NH. The West Side of Manchester, NH does not have a grocery store or supermarket within walking distance. This garden space will allow access to healthy food, as well as create a partnership with the elementary and middle school the field is located next to. Students will learn to grow and cook fruit and vegetables, and share with their families.
