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 community walks, cooking classes, workshops and other events.
Schuylkill Haven Community Garden
In 2019, Schuylkill County's VISION, in collaboration with Schuylkill Haven Borough and partners, broke ground on a community garden! The garden, located at Bubeck Park, consists of four raised beds. Plots are available to community members for $10 a plot and first plot free to Veterans, First Responders, and Senior Citizens (65 years and older). Produce from select plots is harvested and distributed to Evans Network of Companies' employees and Schuylkill Haven Area food pantry.
New in 2022, Jefferson Grange #1384 and volunteers will be managing the community plots that benefit Evans and Schuylkill Haven food pantry, as well as, expanding reach to by donating harvest to additional pantries and projects.
Limited plots still available! Read garden rules, complete registration, and submit registration with payment to Schuylkill VISION, 11 East Main Street, Schuylkill Haven.

Garden Glow Up
In 2021, VISION completed the much anticipated fencing in of the Schuylkill Haven Community Garden. This was made possible through a unique partnership with Schuylkill River Trail (SRT). SRT was replacing a portion of trail fencing along trail in Berks County. With a little TLC we were able to use the old fencing to cut costs and keep raw materials out of landfills!
