Heartland Housing Launches Health, Wellness Programs at Harvest Commons

Heartland Housing introduced residents to many of the great services at Harvest Commons Apartments at the Midwinter Garden & Health Party. Harvest Commons offers residents the opportunity to volunteer in the onsite urban farm, with Heartland’s resident flock of chickens, and to learn about nutrition and green living from Heartland Human Care Services and Heartland Health Outreach. Program highlights include: community gardening, planting crops, individual and group nutrition counseling, and healthy cooking classes. This kickoff event featured a cooking demonstration by Registered Dietitian Jiyoung Kang and resident workshop with Urban Farmer Dave Snyder to announce upcoming events and discuss plans for the community garden.
