COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT THROUGH SELF-MASTERY
The Elephant gardens was founded by the Mother/Daughter team of Joyce Randolph and Vivian Muhammad who have lived in the community in which the Elephant gardens is located for over forty years.
Our mission is embedded in our name. Why Elephant Garden? Elephants are the largest land mammals on the planet and yet they are herbivores. Elephants are also fiercely protective of their young-at almost any cost. These highly intelligent majestic animals are known for their compassion, understanding, loyalty, and keen sense of duty to their herd; it is this strong family bond that is the hallmark of the elephant pack.
What better symbol for an urban garden established for the purpose of promoting healthy diets, engaging and training the youth of the community to grow organic vegetables and fruit, and fostering a positive community environment in which to raise families?
