Through community, workplace, and campus gardens, make healthy food accessible in every community to increase food security, mitigate climate change, and build community resistance. While this passionate and growing movement is gaining momentum, we still have a lot of work to do until every citizen has equal access to the fresh fruits and vegetables that should be a staple of their diets. We’re here to help you empower people to connect with the sources of their food, practice healthy eating, and build communities with a high degree of food security to strengthen personal, communal, and environmental resiliency and health.

Keene, New Hampshire, is committed to becoming the “healthiest community in America” by 2020 (Healthy Monadnock). The “Farm to School” movement is reshaping school lunch programs across the U.S., and various efforts are improving access to healthy food and reducing food insecurity across the globe. AUNE’s Community Garden Connections (CGC) has several robust food justice and garden education programs to complement this certificate, including community-based gardens, workplace gardens, and campus gardens. Over 500 community members participate in CGC programming annually.
