The Southern University Agricultural Research and Extension Center’s SNAP-Ed Nutrition Education Program, in partnership with Well Ahead Louisiana, seeks to enhance the local communities of northern Louisiana through gardening and physical activity initiatives. In collaboration with community leaders and agencies, we seek to create an environment that allows for community businesses and persons to invest not only in the surrounding area but themselves as well. The new environment will be inclusive of gardening sites and physical activity areas with signage to increase body movement. This new project will overall provide a safe space for health literacy and community engagement. We hope to motivate the local community to continue to engage and utilize these investments after funding has concluded.
