In addition to raising funds through the capsule collection,gc2b is also building a community garden at our headquarters outside of D.C where we will be growing and harvesting root vegetables, leafy greens, and healing herbs to offer our community year-round! The herbal designs seen in the capsule collection are inspired by herbs grown in our very garden: borage, spilanthes, calendula, and chocolate mint. All four herbs embody healing and restorative properties for the mind, body, and spirit. We're happy to share that both the yield of the produce from our garden and the proceeds from the capsule collection will also help us build, stock, and maintain a DCFC community refrigerator hosted by one of our partner organizations here in the city.
Nutritional access and food sovereignty are not just an equity issue, they are a human rights issue. We urge you to support our “A Place to Grow” capsule and do your part in ensuring folks are receiving basic necessities to survive.
