Community Gardens Grow Nonprofit Partnerships with Help of the Clearwater Community Volunteers

The Clearwater Community Gardens have partnered with additional nonprofits for their grounds beautification project with the help of the Clearwater Community Volunteers.

Clearwater, FL, August 01, 2020 --( On July 23 the Clearwater Community Gardens joined forces with yet another Clearwater nonprofit, National Community Services, Inc. (NCS), for an upcoming garden beautification project. The partnership was formed with the help of the Clearwater Community Volunteers (CCV), bolstering efforts to start a children’s educational program in the Gardens.

NCS, a nonprofit newly relocated to Clearwater, focuses on bringing food to hungry Floridians through massive food distributions. Their most recent distribution was on July 7 at the Crossroads Christian Church of Largo where they gave out over 12,000 pounds of fresh meat and produce to 500 families.

Isabel Barcelo, Secretary of NCS said, “Although our nonprofits are different, we still want to help people become more aware, take care of their environment and promote healthier foods. Together, we will bring something good to our neighborhood. This is just the beginning of an important cooperative effort.”

The beautification project was organized to assist the Community Garden in maintaining their grounds and will pave the way for the Garden’s new youth organic gardening program. Through this program, children will be able to learn about the importance of maintaining the environment while growing organic foods in their own backyards.

Michael Soltero, Manager of the CCV Center said, “Towards the beginning of July we held a small event in our community center in downtown Clearwater to gather gardening supplies for the Gardens. That same day, the manager of the Gardens immediately got the tools into use by children and families. It was the start of an idea exemplifying what Humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard once wrote, ‘Care of the Planet begins in one’s own front yard. It extends through the area one travels to get to school or can do something about it.’”

The beautification project will take place at the Clearwater Community Gardens, located at 1277 Grove Street in Clearwater, on August 10. The Clearwater Community Volunteers invite those in the local community to take part.
