CHARISM organizes a community garden in partnership with Growing Together at McCormick Park for neighborhood residents to work as a team to grow and harvest nutritious food for their families and neighbors.

Nutrition and cooking teachings are integrated into each session; participants build connections with their neighbors and community in a meaningful way.

We also have educational sessions with children at the garden to teach them about gardening, weather, and nutritious foods. In 2016 CHARISM had 26 families registered.
