Black Girls with Green Thumbs promotes health literacy in a way that is culturally competent and accessible, meeting community members where they are, online and within their neighborhoods, and inviting them to new experiences like home gardening or health-inspired getaways. The proposed Green Thumbs In Your Community project will build a community of individuals, families and community institutions like public libraries that utilize gardening as a tool for nutrition education and positive health outcomes. Black Girls with Green Thumbs seeks support for online nutrition education and healthy cooking instruction; completing library gardens and providing garden education, and the planning of a wellness retreat for 92 and 86 from distressed communities, including those living in homeless shelters.
