Hay Bale Gardens for Pike
Our little county in west central Georgia is full of commuters to metro Atlanta--one hour away. Many people commute "dark to dark" so they and their families have little time to plant gardens. We are proposing to introduce our families and seniors to commuter gardens--AKA "hay bale" gardens that are small, easy to weed, and can be moved! These gardens are hay bales that are planted with vegetable seedlings, watered, fertilized and harvested--all in one compact, moveable, compostable unit. The volunteers at our local farmers market will create several demonstration gardens--then, they will assist kids and seniors to create their own haybale gardens right next door in an accessable and safe spot. Hay bales, tools, and seedlings will be provided free of charge. We'll invite the community to visit so our kids can see where vegetables come from and how they grow. Our "big" goal is to inspire our kids to eat healthy, respect the land, and maybe, inspire them to be farmers when they grow up!
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.
