YADKINVILLE — New Horizons Adult Day Services, Inc. was recently awarded a community garden grant from Nourishing North Carolina, One Garden At A Time. Nourishing NC is an extension of BCBSNC’s long-standing commitment to improve the health and well-being of North Carolinians.
If the vision is a success, at least 190,000 pounds of fruits and vegetables will be produced to supplement more than 149,000 meals with fresh fruits and vegetables, increase consumption of fruits and vegetables by at least two servings per day for 1,300 individuals overall, support food pantries and homeless shelters statewide with at least 20,000-pound donation of fruits and vegetables and provide 17,000 hours of physical activity through garden maintenance.
This garden is located downtown Yadkinville across the street from Yadkinville UMC. Helping with the garden have been the consumers and staff at New Horizons Adult Day Services, Inc. and Oz Prim, Everette Hartzog and Evelyn Moxley.
