This is One Garden that Grows More than Food

By Jack Day

If more projects like the community garden started by Boone St. Farm were around it might just be the kind of turning point inner cities need. Many of the local kids took quite an interest in the project from the first day and have been pivotal in it’s success. They prefer the reward of creating and tending something that they can then gain many skills from. Stories like this one are too far and few between these days, and inspire the rest of us to think outside the box.

What do you think of community gardens and the impact they have on poorer neighborhoods? Are they good? Bad? Indifferent? Let us know your thoughts and please share any experiences you have!
