We are very proud of our accomplishments in providing community service opportunities for friends, families and community partners from all over the nation: churches, schools, youth groups, juvenile detention centers, universities, businesses, corporations, non-profit organizations, government groups and individuals. We cannot forget, however, that the Atwood Community Gardens & Urban Farm Park Model’s primary focus is to provide S.T.E.M. educational opportunities for at-risk, low income students that attend schools located within a 5-10 mile radius of our Atwood Model sites.
