CASE DAILY - Staff Members Dig into Gardening Project, Helping Residents Pick Healthy Food Options

Staff members in the Prevention Research Center for Healthy Neighborhoods (PRC) program do more than just work together. They take turns tending to a community garden and get together regularly over lunch to enjoy the fruits of their labor.


David Pearl, co-convener of the Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Food Policy Coalition and a PRC staff member, said the garden fits in with the center’s mission. “The core project for the research center relates to healthier food options,” said Pearl. The PRC program is part of Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine.
