The Borough of Carlisle is a proud recipient of a 2022 Healthy Babies Initiative Grant!

The proposed community garden will have plots for growing vegetables, accessible options for differently-abled persons, and natural areas to help pollinators. The garden will be attractive and visible from public streets in the neighborhood.

The Borough will work with the landowner to bring healthy food into local homes and improve nutrition for garden participants, friends, and families. This project hopes to encourage neighbors to peacefully connect through community gardening.
