community gardens :: boulder
Connecting people with a local food source and an opportunity to grow it themselves is critical in every town and city. Here in Boulder the community gardening organization Growing Gardens offers up 10 locations around town for this experience. A stroll through any of them is more fun than a city park, its great to gaze upon how other people do it--use materials for fencing, prop up plants, what they cover them with, how they layout their plot.
Growing Gardens also has youth programs, handicap accessible gardening, composting and other classes, a food donation project and a greenhouse that sells veggie and plant starters in the spring. If there is not one in your community, start one!!
