Description:

Brandon Harrison, who at 20 years old lost his life due to gun violence, was actively working to improve conditions for young people of color in Stockton and throughout California as a youth community organizer and policy advocate who promoted health, healing justice, unity, education, and restorative practices. Brandon found peace in nature and enjoyed the beauty of trees and what could be produced from the soil beneath our feet. Members of the community plant trees in the garden to honor the lives their love ones who have lost their lives due to gun violence. We want to the garden to be place of peace and refuge for families. This project will involve some cleanup, irrigation, laying of pavers and creating planter boxes. Food grown in the garden will be shared with community and also give neighborhood school children an opportunity to learn about sustainable food sources.
