                 THE COMMUNITY

              GARDENS  PROJECT

Our newest venture is AMAZING!!! We are excited to announce our community Garden Project that will provide fresh vegetables to people that are unable to afford them. With Oasis Sofas we plan to bring fresh produce to “Food Deserts” A food desert is any area in the industrialized world where healthy, affordable food is difficult to obtain. Food deserts are prevalent in rural as well as urban areas and are most prevalent in low-socioeconomic minority communities. They are associated with a variety of diet-related health problems.

We look forward to updating everyone with the progress.  We are currently in the planning and development process and looking for dedicated volunteers to help make this dream come true.  The garden will be located in Greensboro North Carolina.  For more info and details please email volunteersinc@gmail.com
