Sustaining A Community Garden
Our community garden, located on top of a hill, is in a quiet spot that receives full sun in the front and significant shade in the back. We will celebrate the garden’s second anniversary soon. During the past year, and with the support of some 40 individuals and families, we have grown and harvested collards, lettuce, radishes, strawberries, one turnip, many sun gold cherry tomatoes, and, soon, eggplant. Gardeners have donated all the produce to neighbors who need food.
For the past year, we have been able to rely solely on rain water for our plants. This has helped us manage the costs associated with maintaining the community garden.
Every garden needs a quiet spot. And, our community has one where gardeners can relax.
In our second year, we plan to increase our harvest and continue donating fruits and veggies to organizations that serve our neighbors in need.
