The Children’s Shakespeare and Outdoor Garden at Lichgate
By the Damayan Garden Project
The garden is designed to engage children’s imaginations and was built with the Gardens for Good grant sponsored by Nature’s Path Organic and Organic Gardening Magazine.
The garden encourages learning through Shakespeare’s works, and is filled with edible plants.
Other activities for kids in the garden include yoga, and education on sustainability and land stewardship.
All of this will help children become engaged in the core subjects of literature, science, math and ecology, while learning about fresh fruits and vegetables.

The Vallejo People’s Garden
The Vallejo People’s Garden was built with a Gardens for Good grant from Nature’s Path Organic and Organic Gardening Magazine.
The primary goal of the garden is to provide food for people in the area who are in need.
The garden also focuses on engaging and educating the community about health and wellness.
The Vallejo People’s Garden hopes to “create the next generation of farmers, gardeners, teachers, leaders, and active community members.”
