Our Box of Hope program is comprised of several components. DeKalb County Community Gardens (DCCG) trains individuals with developmental disabilities in the horticultural and agricultural fields at our Walnut Grove Vocational Farm (WGVF) located in Kirkland. The farm is where the vegetables for our Boxes of Hope are grown, prepared and packaged by WGVF participants.
WGVF participants learn skills that will help them gain experience for employment and ensure a productive place for young adults with disabilities in the community.
Each growing season, DCCG, grows and distributes thousands of pounds of fresh produce for local individuals and families in need. Box of Hope subscribers provide revenue which goes to support DCCG's efforts to provide food in DeKalb County.
