You, Me, and Us Holistic Community Garden (YMUS) will assist the underserved in Fayetteville by improving the community’s well-being by providing fresh organic produce and a space for healing and positive social engagement.
ABOUT THE YMUS HOLISTIC COMMUNITY GARDEN
Food access is a health justice issue. The food drought has further complicated access in Fayetteville, leaving our most vulnerable populations without nutritious foods that can fuel the body, mind, and soul.
YMUS will transform the community through meaningful engagement and promotion of a food forest. Visitors will discover the benefits of planting, nurturing and picking their own produce. In the holistic garden, interactions among gardeners, plants, animals and the environment produce results greater than the sum of individual parts.
Currently, YMUS occupies 2 acres of land in the heart of Fayetteville. Through generous donors and partnerships, children on the autism spectrum benefit from interaction with live animals.
Become an inaugural donor of YMUS
Remember and honor loved ones and friends permanently by ordering a custom engraved paver. A contribution of $250 will pave the way for a space of healing and positive social engagement. A special dedication ceremony will take place upon installation.
