With the strong support of the community, the garden at Barkdull Faulk Elementary School is flourishing. This project empowers youth and the community by teaching where food comes from, practical math skills, basic business principles, the importance of stewardship, environmental sustainability, and life skills. All crops will go to students’ homes along with a garden starter kit to help students continue to learn and grow. Check back often to find out where we will plant the next community garden.

The CDC reports approximately 20,000 women in Ouachita parish are physically inactive, and 19,000 women are obese. With more than 20% of our population living in poverty these women will suffer increased risk for heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. Sole Sisters stresses the importance of being physically active.
