So for many you, you know I run community gardens and recently a gardener of mine submitted a story about their experience and the little life lesson they gleaned. We have a rooster (named Omelet) at our garden and he is a character, he is the one that inspired this story. So enjoy, I am done with the conference in New Orleans today and am heading back to Charlotte tonight.
Thought I’d show you an update on the chickens! They are now 3 months old. Rhode Island Reds at the community garden I run.
Recently I have moved the chicks, who are now all grown up, to their new home in the coop I built. The first day was an adjustment for them because it was soooo hot outside, but they are doing well and seem very happy.
Hey all! So I know I have shared many things on gardening, but I wanted to share a project I have been working on and am very excited about. I have recently launched a community garden here in Charlotte, NC. I was volunteering with some folks one day who I found out through an off hand comment that they wanted a garden. They were saying that they had always wanted one, but didn’t know how to go about doing it. So after talking with them, I discovered they had 8 acres that they didn’t use!
So from these humble beginnings we have progressed a long way! We now have 20 gardeners, from all walks of life, religions, incomes, ethnicity etc. Of the food we grow, approximately 10% is donated to food banks. We have big plans for next year, but its been a great growing season so far. Check out the latest photos from our garden.
Hey all, I wanted to reach out and get some support from you all. I work for a non-profit and I am working to start 10 new community gardens by submitting my idea to Pepsi’s “Refresh Everything” campaign. Basically I have my idea, you all vote for it once a day, every day and if I have enough votes to be in the top ten projects, I will get the funding.
Go here to vote once a day, every day!
