Shelbyville Community Garden organizingPosted Friday, February 27, 2009, at 8:31 PM
Sherrie wrote in to let us know about a new community garden effort. http://shelbyville-garden-of-life.com/ It sounds like a commendable program and one many of us might like to join.
"We have our first work day this Saturday, Feb 28 at 9:00. Hoping for good weather.
We also plan to work with John Teague & others in his office for cooking classes & also canning. We want this effort to grow to other churches, property in town (empty lots) and be a "gift" for the unemployed, poor, etc.
Some people don't know how to cook fresh vegetables. They have plans to host cooking classes--- and hopefully teaching the use of herbs.
We also hope to teach & "host" canning evenings at the various church kitchens. Teach the skills & also let people take their canned goods home.
We can be a resource for people who have "too many" tomatoes, beans, etc from their garden --- they can donate & know their vegetables are not being wasted.
We are definitely going the organic/sustainable type of gardening. We will not get certified organic, but incorporate the practices into our methods.
