Creating Community with Gardens: One At A Time

The Social Justice Learning Center in Inglewood is building gardens for the community one home at a time. The program not only teaches people how to grow food, but also provides the soil, seedlings and fertilizer to get the family started. They also manage the community garden at Queen Park. Neighbors are welcome to use the harvest in their own kitchens. Not only is it a wonderful way to get fresh food into households, but it also teaches people how to grow their own organic food. And we could all use a little more of that.

Kudos to Nicole Carter and those involved in creating a wonderful program. I’m glad that I was able to help out for a day.
