Health Equity Through Community Gardens
NEPHTC Health Equity Intern, Sam McClean, worked as the Community Garden Coordinator with Maine General Medical Center’s health Waterville Action Team.
NEPHTC is happy to see how Sam’s work improved access to community gardens and healthy food in the Waterville, Maine region. Sam worked with existing gardening groups, teenagers, community members to oversee six community gardens, including new garden sites in the Hillside Avenue neighborhood.
We are grateful to the host organization, Maine General Medical Center for giving our intern an experiential learning project and promoting public health through community gardens!
Thank you Sam!
