Faith Community Garden
I recently found that I love to garden. I started off just growing strawberries on my balcony, because as an apartment dweller my options were limited. I began experimenting with other forms of container gardening and everyone knows that is gateway gardening. I researched community gardens and found one in the genreal vicinity of my office. I was put on a waiting list at Faith Community Garden here in Austin, Texas and about six months later a plot became available. Now, I hardly ever need to buy produce (just when I get tired of okra and turnips) and at the height of the seasons I have had plenty to give to the church's food pantry, to co-workers and salad greens for my roommate. There is nothing more glorious than passing out Red Burgandy Okra like the...ugh...okra fairy? Anyway, I would love to improve our garden with a couple pf upgrades...and can always use soil amendments (love that Texas Green Sand).
KGI is a nonprofit community of over 30,000 people who are growing some of our own food and helping others to do the same.
