In April 2014, our south yard was a lawn. I posted to Front Porch Forum looking for people who might want to use some of the lawn to grow food.

The posts brought responses from so many community members that we formed a community garden.

That former lawn now produces hundreds of kinds of fresh, delicious food. We are winding down our second growing season. This year, 20 gardeners grew food here to feed their households. Additionally, the garden provides hundreds of pounds of food for local organizations feeding people in need.
