Schuylkill Haven was the first Health Schuylkill community. Since 2013 a dedicated coalition of community organizations and individuals have created evidence-based programs to improve the health of the community. The theme is to make the healthy choice, the easy choice.
Some of the programs include health fairs, historic and farm hikes, cooking classes, workshops and other events. In addition there has been a community walking challenge each year.
Schuylkill Haven will be the next community to construct a Community Garden. Coming in the Spring 2019 we will be working with local residents to construct a raised bed garden in Bubeck Park. This garden will support local gardeners, a local food bank, and employees of Evans Network. We will be holding community meetings to listen to local residents' ideas for the garden. For more information about the Schuylkill Haven Community Garden please call 570-622-6097.
