Waterloo Community Garden Water Project
The UNI Center for Energy & Environmental Education (CEEE) creates opportunities for UNI students, faculty and staff to work with community leaders to arrive at evidence-based, solution-oriented responses to the problems they wish to address.
One of the problems the CEEE is currently addressing is the empowerment of refugees in the Cedar Valley. The UNI-CEEE’s Local Food Program has been working with refugees who recently moved to the area to create a Community Garden. The garden, created in collaboration with the city of Waterloo, is located in a vacant lot and gives the refugees the opportunity to grow fresh vegetables.
For the garden to flourish, an on-site water source is needed. This project will install a water source on the property and every gift will go towards installation. When the $6,000 goal is reached an infrastructure will be in place for the Community Garden to benefit generations to come. Your gift today will greatly benefit an initiative that is helping the Cedar Valley become a place where refugees want to call home and develop roots in the community.
