Garden 2 Table
Learn & Do
Garden2Table develops individual, community, and production gardens to support healthy food access. The Garden2Table program is working to address the lack of access to healthy foods among some segments of our population or in areas of our city. The Garden2Table program provides Chesapeake’s citizens with access to healthy foods through community gardens developed within their neighborhood, provision of individual grow boxes, and the establishment of production sites that produce food for distribution.
