Public schools on Wake County's traditional calendar will be ending this week, heralding the beginning of summer camp season in Raleigh! The City of Oaks Foundation will be providing over $20,000 in financial aid to under-resourced families to help their children get outside this summer and build connections to nature in active, outdoor summer camps.
The presence of agriculture in the urban environment positively affects the natural environment, the local economy, social relations and household economic behavior, all of which contribute to the livability of the city. Acknowledging the challenges facing our food system, the Environmental Advisory Board seeks to promote the personal and societal benefits of urban agriculture.
