Would love to hear about other projects to increase access to fresh food and gardening for low-income households. We've partnered on Urban Farmers In Training that connected homeless individuals with gardening training and land to grow food for eating and selling at farmer's markets, grown our own food for use in Meals On Wheels, soup kitchen and food pantry meals and worked with volunteers to keep our projects successful.

Being in a very rural area we are teaching 5 classes on gardening and then how to take those vegetable to the table.   We also want to provide plants, seeds, containers to those who need the help.

We had several volunteers helping build a trellis and improving our garden area last weekend. Our program serves homeless, under-served families and individuals, children and seniors in Lee County Florida.

A garden is more than just a collection of plants. It's an expression of the gardener. Children can personalize their gardens in many ways beyond simply growing favorite vegetables and flowers. Create memories that will last beyond this growing season with personalized walkways, animal houses, arches, and much more.
