HPD PAL Community Gardening

Hartford Police Department's PAL program spent a day in the community garden on Earle Street. Learning where foods come from, nutrition, and community service are just a few things these PAL participants learn throughout the year. 

PAL Garden


The Hartford Police Department PAL program provides youth, between the ages of 6 to 18, with alternatives to violence, gang membership, truancy and substance abuse.  PAL programs instill the importance of integrity, respect, discipline, self-esteem, leadership, teamwork and other valuable life skills that increase individual self-worth and breed success.
