Community gardens are wonderful projects. Some are for the needy, like the one at Campbell, giving the produce to families who need assistance or ministries who feed the hungry. Others are for people who don't have the land or other resources to have a family garden. In these gardens, if you show up so many hours per week and help work the garden, you can reap some of the harvest when it's ready.
I love that people are becoming more passionate about growing their own food! Here are some reasons to find and participate in a community garden:
- Grow healthy, natural food
- Gardening is great exercise
- Meet new people in your community
- Save on your grocery bill
- It's a great ministry
