Gardening Under the Microscope (GUM), Meals In Need Today (MINT), and the Bridge to Youth Leadership Program
Gardening Under the Microscope (GUM) connects climate and food systems education with community-based gardening. Basilica Bio presents in collaboration with BIPOC farming partners on topics including bioremediation, history of the environmental justice movement, and social determinants of health, while teaching farming and gardening practices, to give community members hands-on experience producing food in the local food system. This project will also support the launch of a food distribution program called Meals In Need Today (MINT), and the Bridge to Youth Leadership Program.
