How can urban food gardening prevent hunger, heal
communities and reduce pollution?
Find out from Growing Gardens' Executive Director
In 1999, Growing
Gardens coordinated 180 volunteers to help build gardens and teach
sustainable food gardening to low income people of all ages in communities
from St Johns to outer southeast.
The gardens they create provide fresh food, beauty, education,
jobs and friendship for individuals, schools and organizations -
wherever the need is greatest.
Brian Lacy has been involved in a number of community projects concerned
with helping poor people help themselves. He founded the Community
Cycling Center (of Yellow Bike fame) in '94, grew up in his father's
vegetable garden, and loves to tend an apiary of 6 honeybee hives
near 50th and NE Killingsworth.
