“And it gives us hope that this place is a place of healing.”
In this episode we hear from Cordia Pugh, executive director of Hermitage Street Community Gardens (HSCG). HSCG provides education, helping build the community with healthy living in urban agriculture giving old and young alike the chance to get their hands in the soil and enjoy nature in the community. HSCG is a part of her broader 501c3 non-profit organization called Community Services of Englewood which includes the neighboring Englewood Veterans Garden.
“When people come here, they have to cultivate hope. Hope is not something that is instilled with us. Joy is not something that is instilled in us. We have to cultivate them”
