A unique and viable approach to establishing local food self-reliance while building stronger communities.

|Sharing the bounty - garden helpers "shop" for their week's vegetables.|
What makes these Sharing Gardens unique is that, instead of many separate plots, that are rented by individuals, we all garden together. All materials and labor are donated. The food we grow is shared by all who have contributed in some way. All surplus is donated to local food-charities (like Food Pantries and Soup Kitchens).
