Today, more than half of the world's population lives in cities. As the urban population grows, cities must evolve. CHA has been doing its small part to foster sustainable dependence on our own land in the few available places.
The Ruth L. Bennett Homes Community Garden is now entering its fifth year, thanks to the efforts of residents, students and many CHA staff members.On Earth Day, Tuesday, April 22nd, CHA staff members who choose to participate will devote part of their usual workday to begin seasonal preparation of the existing garden while clearing ground for this year's planned expansion.The vegetables grown are kept in the community.
