GROW YOUR OWN

Valley United Way understands there is major food insecurity in the Valley. With the help of the sponsors and donors, they made it possible for the neighborhoods in Ansonia, Derby, Seymour, Shelton, and Oxford to have community gardens. These gardens were built to help food insecure residents obtain fresh fruit and vegetables.

“Grow Your Own” was established four years ago, and the gardens consisted of plants, soil and tools and that were provided to Valley residents in need for backyard gardening. To see if there is a garden near you, look below.
