We need your feedback

Hello, gardeners and supporters of community gardens!

Our friends at the City are working on a project, which involves a grant application, that would be an enormous benefit to our network of community gardens. The effort to secure this project's funding would benefit quite a great deal if it were accompanied by some accounts from those our gardens serve.

If you have the time and inclination, I would love to receive letters from you or your organization by noon this Monday, March 7. I will compile them and forward them to the person leading this project.

Our gardens serve individuals and the communities they form in so many ways. If we can collectively express how the gardens in our communities underlie and support the issues of community cohesion and building, food security, and wholesome and healthful activity I believe our case for approval will be made stronger. And approval of this project - which I will shout details of from the rooftops when and if we end up being a "GO" - could be a productive precedent for further support. Please email or use the Contact Us form at the bottom of this site and let us know how community gardens have made your world a better place.
