  • Increasing access to community gardens, pocket parks, and community gathering spaces
  • Educate the community about environmental sustainability
  • Educate people about healthy food choices
  • Improve aesthetics and pride in community
  • Provide a space for residents to become agents of change and contribute to the health and well-being of their community
  • Reduction of violence and drug activities in vacant spaces resulting in a safer space to live

Projects like this have the potential to improve life in Sacramento on many levels.  Alchemist CDC is bringing the community together as a catalyst for change!
