The Linda Vista Community Garden at Bayside bridges cultural divides and improves the quality of life and health through community outreach and collaboration, hands-on learning through gardening, gardening cultivation, harvesting and healthy food access, and inter-generational celebrations of cultural diversity. The Linda Vista Community Garden at Bayside is part of a coordinated set of initiatives that brings together community garden, advocacy and education involving schools (K-12 and university students/programs), farmers' market and quality of life planning.
The garden creates the opportunity for dialogue about the lack of fresh produce in the area. In San Diego, there is a lack of consciousness as to where the food we eat comes from. The garden project allows the community to follow the journey of a "seed" to the "vegetable" on their plates and their connection to better health. The Linda Vista's rich cultural heritage plays an important part in connecting generations.
