The Community Care Fund awarded a grant to NEEM, a local non-profit with the aim of bringing sustainably produced foods to low- and moderate-income neighborhoods and food deserts. The Community Care Fund grant supported a day of building, when NEEM staff and hundreds of volunteers built an edible park on West Chapel Hill Street, laid the groundwork for a 10-acre urban farm, and renovated a store on Hazel Street that where community members will be able to purchase the produce from the NEEM gardens. To the right is the new community garden built by NEEM on Canal Street in Durham.
