Looking for an activity to help reduce stress, increase flexibility, prevent illness and promote healthy nutrition?

Atlantic County invites non-profit organizations to begin growing healthy by participating in a new county initiative. Growing Healthy: Atlantic County Community Garden Project is sponsored by the Atlantic County Division of Public Health and the Cape Atlantic Coalition for Health to promote healthy communities through good nutrition and exercise.

The project was funded through a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, NJ Partnership for Healthy Kids and will continue to be sustainable by the Atlantic County Division of Public Health.
