Columbia Center for Urban Agriculture
CCUA works to enhance our community’s health by connecting people to agriculture and the land through hands-on learning opportunities from seed to plate. The VISTA project will seek to: support newly established programs, help existing programs adapt to using Columbia’s Agriculture Park, and expand virtual programming in light of the COVID-19 crisis. The VISTA project expects to benefit families living with low-incomes, children enrolled in Columbia Public Schools (a school district with high rates of free and reduced lunch), and military veterans. VISTA members will contribute to the goals of the project by performing activities such as: creating lessons, creating garden plans, creating interpretive displays for use at Columbia’s Agriculture Park, organizing events, offering virtual educational programs, training educators and school employees over the course of three years, recruiting volunteers, and developing new virtual programming.
