Lifecycle Building Center Print
2020 AARP Community Challenge Grantee
Using 90 reclaimed materials, Lifecycle Building Center will build ten accessible garden beds and seven Little Free Pantries to support older adults, largely in refugee and marginalized communities experiencing food insecurity.
Fourteen â€œLittle Free Pantriesâ€ and 10 garden beds were built using recycled and salvaged lumber donated by the Construction Education Foundation of Georgia. The Lifecycle Building Center used the fabrication work to demonstrate how the construction industry can help strengthen communities by prioritizing the reuse of materials. The nonprofit Friends of Refugees stocked the pantries with 1,000 pounds of food. The raised-bed planters were installed in community gardens.
