We had an incredible growing season this year. It was our first year and we didn’t know if anything would grow, if anyone would join us, or if the area would just fill with trash and rats. Truly, the opposite occurred. We made friends and built a community around the garden, we talked about food justice, we grew delicious, healthy food, and we ate it together and shared it with others.
A few weekends ago we got together to celebrate our accomplishments. We pulled the last few sweet potatoes, cut some kale, turned the soil and dreamed about next year. We’re not hibernators though. In the winter we’ll kick into high gear, strategizing about how to get healthy food and equality to more people.
