Growing Communities

In 2010 the city of Pomona leased an empty lot across the street from the Community Center to the church for a Community Garden. Pomona Hope is proud to partner with this Community Garden effort which has reduced crime in our neighborhood by 40% in the last six months. The vision of the garden is to grow food, people and community. Already, one family has saved over $100 a month in grocery bills. In the future, this Community Garden hopes to pilot a scalable model for urban green-space and gardening, as well as continue to impact the local community positively in terms of decreasing crime, increasing relationships, allowing opportunities to learn about gardening, agriculture and nutrition, and improving the lives of neighbors both through the beauty they see outside their doors, and the nutrition of food they can put on their dinner tables.
