Green Thumbs in Your Community

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 invites them to new experiences like community-based gardening and physical activity.  The ongoing “Green Thumbs In Your Community” program will continue to build a network of individuals, families, and community institutions that utilize gardening and physical activity as tools for positive health outcomes. Black Girls With Green Thumbs seeks support for: 1) “Green Thumbs AT HOME” a live stream video podcast that offers nutrition education, home garden guidance, and plant-based cooking instruction; 2) expansion of  “Green Thumbs In Your Library” to include free, trauma-informed bi-monthly community yoga classes; 3) planning for the redevelopment of the “Lansdowne Farmers Market Community Youth Garden”, a youth garden-to-market, green entrepreneurship program. Black Girls With Green Thumbs is fiscally-sponsored by Influencing Action Movement Foundation.
