For a long time, Barrio Logan needed an open space to cultivate community and healthy living. After years of listening to community requests, the Environmental Health Coalition worked with residents to plant and grow the Chicano Park Herb Garden.
At the root of the garden, our community understands that open spaces are vital to improving the health of our neighborhood. Now, local schools, organizations and residents have a place to experience nature in a hands-on way.
The Chicano Park Herb Garden serves its ultimate purpose as an open space for Barrio Logan families to enjoy and for visitors to appreciate nature. We think that’s a victory for #healthyhoods. For more information on how you can volunteer, email email@example.com.

Wonderful to see this! There is a beautiful community garden at a church in my neighborhood. I’ve watched it grow, expand and be nurtured by residents lacking their own garden space. It’s a healthy, community-building experience for the hosts & the gardeners alike.
I look forward to seeing this one grow & expand with use.
