    Partnering with MicroHabitat has proven to be seamless for us. The gardeners and the team at our gardens look great, and more importantly, they produce tons of fresh, local food so we can give back to those in need. Tenants have responded to these programs in ways we did not expect. We are immensely proud of our partnership with MicroHabitat and look forward to expanding our locations and enjoying many sustainable years ahead.

    Partnering with Microhabitat was a natural fit as we work towards creating urban spaces that support biodiversity and the needs of our community. The specialized garden tours and hands-on workshops for our tenants have also promoted the importance of supporting our local communities and food sources.

    The installation of the urban garden has transformed our green space to provide our residents with healthy, accessible and sustainable agriculture. The urban garden has given the opportunity for our residents to connect with nature, meet new people, and experience where our food comes from. This initiative has been successful in providing our residents with the resources, knowledge and tools for improved wellness through gardening.
