Earth Month 2012 in Sustainable Atwoods [New!] Community Garden

Will Allens Growing Power has inspired us to grow as much food on our little parcel of land as possible. Sustainable Atwoods urban acreage is a space for learning, community building and strengthening partnerships across the local food movement.

Our vision is to teach people to learn the art of agriculture and growing produce in a small urban setting. The gardens emphasis in 2012 is to show neighbors how wood from our urban forest can be used to create growing and composting structures, mushroom farming, garden boxes, beehives, chicken-coops and vermiculture, and, of course, growing a variety of food! All interested neighbors, businesses and friends are welcome to participate in creating and nourishing this garden.
