What is VEGI?

IMG 1616The Valley Educational Gardens Initiative (VEGI) provides educational opportunities to kids, adults, and families by teaching about gardening and nutrition while also producing healthy food to benefit the community. VEGI is a collaborative project among La Puente, local schools, area non-profits, and community members. Food grown in our gardens is distributed to the homeless shelter for meals, throughout the Food Bank Network, and to community members who are in need or who have lent a helping hand.
