Project Summary
Miranda will increase the resilience of Lexington, Kentucky citizens by improving food security for minorities and low-income residents, via community gardens and educational programs in food production for youth. Ten community gardens will serve the area; an edible schoolyard project will be expanded; and a greenhouse program will be created in partnership with a local vocational school to supply seedlings and extend the growing season. All project initiatives will be aimed at increasing the availability of healthy food for area families.
