Do you plant a garden every year, or are you thinking of becoming a gardener? What if you could start your vegetable garden for free?
Urban Abundance is a local non-profit that engages neighbors in the creation, maintenance, and harvest of edible landscapes. Be part of a growing community of garden hosts and join the Resiliency Garden program.
Urban Abundance will provide vegetable starts and seeds that are seasonally appropriate for success to folks interested in hosting a small garden space in their front yard. The idea is that the garden is shared with anyone walking by.
The idea is to eliminate some of the barriers in installing a garden and to promote a sharing economy. Urban Abundance will provide vegetable starts and seeds, signage for passersby about the rules and purpose of the garden, some supplies (which may include organic fertilizers, hand tools, and trellising), resources, and education.
You can be a host by maintaining the garden, harvesting the garden for yourself, and also donating bounty to the food bank, and encourage others to harvest.
