Marin City Community Garden Project

Hart Fogel

Mill Valley, CA | 16

2015 AWARD RECIPIENT

"Digging in the dirt with one’s hands alongside people from different backgrounds results in a visceral sense of connection transcending racial and socioeconomic differences."

Marin City Community Garden Project

Hart Fogel found a way to combine his community garden work and passion for restorative justice, forging a partnership between the Marin City Community Garden Project and the Marin County Youth Court that allows youth offenders to volunteer community service hours. In the process, Hart has brought together diverse volunteers, breaking down stereotypes as people come together to give the community access to fresh, healthy food.
