Just Grow It

Have you heard about Unity Gardens? They strive to improve community health and build community within the structure of gardens. Not only are they about growing and harvesting healthy food, but also educating the public, from the Growing Summit to weekly Jr. Master Gardener classes. What a great activity for families. You should check it out. Those weekly classes are held on Saturdays at the LaSalle Square Unity Garden (3701 Prast Ave) from 10 to 11:30am.

The network of gardens are all over town, so find a location near you to volunteer and then enjoy the fruits of your labor.  Take advantage of this great resource and tell your neighbors. Also, look for vacant properties near you. Perhaps we could open more of these gardens soon. Let’s plan to clean out potential land during The Weekend Project on October 6th and 7th. Post here if you’d like more info on The Weekend Project.

By the way, they also have a new shirt available for purchase. It’s really quite clever. Pick up your new Unity Gardens shirt at the Urban Garden Market (on Bendix just south of Lincolnway) from 9am to 1pm on Saturdays. Check it out:
