Create Urban Food Forest and Trails with Clement Waters Retreat

  • 7215 Jackson Avenue Kansas City, MO 64132 (map)

Where: 7215 Jackson Avenue, Kansas City, MO 64132

When: Saturday, March 16 from 8:30-11:30 a.m.

Size: 7-10 volunteers needed

Details: Volunteers will assist with building raised beds and cleaning up trails and ground. All ages welcome. Clement Waters Retreat is transforming a vacant 4-acre lot on the south end of Swope Park into an urban food forest and walking trail. Why is that important? The area is in a USDA food desert. That means that healthy food options are just not available to people who could really use healthy foods to help them avoid long-term medical problems associated with low incomes.
