GLIDE’s Gardens: Earth Day, Everyday

The GLIDE community celebrates Earth Day everyday from our rooftop gardens at our Family Youth and Childcare Center (FYCC), Cecil Williams Community House (CW House), and Graze the Roof, our volunteer-run edible garden at 330 Ellis.

GLIDE’s gardens bring our urban community closer to nature and closer to their food sources. Each of the gardens is used as a tool for education, community building, and most importantly, our gardens invite our community into discussions about food justice and food equality. In a neighborhood without a single grocery store, Tenderloin residents rely on the food that is available to them at their corner stores or bodegas. Our gardens open up the possibility for nutritious and healthy eating to our communities.

Joyce Hayes, celebrating life, love and GLIDE with @doricamino and @edenchanstreetscooper at the 2014 Holiday Jam. A retro photo of Joyce Hayes, a true GLIDE hero, who so strongly believed in supporting children and providing them with stability, education and #unconditionallove. GLIDE regrets to tell our community that Joyce Hayes, an icon in our history and childcare program, passed away on Tuesday, 5/23/2017. Her life, love and legacy will not be forgotten. 
Please take a moment to read this tribute to our beloved "Joy": glidesf.wordpress.com/2017/05/26/in-memory-of-joyce-hayes-the-heartbeat-of-glides-fycc/ Shout-out @blueshieldofca volunteers! Our Harm Reduction Team always needs people to help assemble safer injection kits. Distributing these kits to our community members who inject drugs greatly reduces the spread of Hep C and HIV. It's about #publichealth and recognizing the dignity and human rights of ALL people living in our city! #harmreduction #cleansharps
