What if I love in a tiny studio apartment with no garden and no balcony? Or what if I can't afford to shop at Wholefoods?
That is why Community Gardens exist. I recently stumbled upon the website for The American Community Gardening Association and I'd like to quote them here: "Community gardening improves people’s quality of life by providing a catalyst for neighborhood and community development, stimulating social interaction, encouraging self-reliance, beautifying neighborhoods, producing nutritious food, reducing family food budgets, conserving resources and creating opportunities for recreation, exercise, therapy and education". If you don't have the space at home or if you just have no idea hoe to to grow your own veggies, community gardens are perfect for you.
The website has every tool you need to either find a community garden near you or start one in your own neighborhood.
This is what I mean when I talk about sustainable living and how it can be done easier than most people think.
I would like to thank the ACGA for their amazing job at trying to make a difference in how people eat and view their food. Please visit their website to learn more about how to get involved in your neighborhood. This is a great legacy to live to our children.
