Fitness Equipment for Active Agers on Parkway
Community development project to provide the Parkway Senior Center with fitness equipment for the well-being of the seniors.
Vaughn Community Garden Project
The Gulf Coast RC&D Council believes that community gardens can be beneficial to the health and well-being of local communities. The introduction of a community garden may be able to reduce the impact of food availability and allow residents greater access to nutritious food that is necessary to live a healthy lifestyle. The photos you see are from a plasticulture demonstration. Plasticulture is the use of plastics in crop protection. This method has helped farmers increase production, improve food quality, minimize water consumption and reduce their ecological footprint. We have had the pleasure of working with Mr. Mitch Nye and the Vaughn Community as they work to get their community garden project up and running. Thank you for all of the hard work and time you have put into completing your project! .
