The therapeutic effects of community gardening are incalculable. The effort of putting your fingers in the dirt and watching seeds grow is a lesson in self-sustainability that can only be learned by experience.

In cities across the country, active communities are turning small spaces into a big success. Our community garden in St. Louis, MO, hopes to achieve this result and more.

We will focus on development, growth and self-sufficiency. Our goal is to continue transforming our community, and lay a foundation for success and leadership through neighborhood improvements and economic development in neglected areas. Our goal is to change the look and perspective of the Wellston Loop. The focus is to create a positive, Progressive approach to improving health and welfare of our communities.


COFLA is working hard to plant, cultivate, and supply healthy food choices for our youth and the surrounding communities. The community garden serves as a gateway to create a cohesive relationship between the academy and the neighborhood.

This project is a collaborative effort to improve health and education, and promote an equitable, sustainable community.

Our community garden is a stepping stone to that end.
