The Problem

Our R&S group would like to aid food insecurity and lack of greenspaces in low income families, many living without land for gardening but will have access to planters. The children of our group will lead the discussion about their patience with gardening duties, signs of ripeness and favorite recipes. We hope their guilelessness will ease the adults evaluation if it's worth their effort to even try gardening.

Our Plan

We plan to distribute our home-grown heirloom organic vegetable and herb seeds to our community at both a self-serve, indoor climate-controlled stationary table in a community space and at an annual community event. We will also provide information on the basics of gardening, cooking and preservation. We will use our group's R&S banner (that we got with a previous grant to have at our farmers market table where we shared info about native species) at our new event to share heirloom seeds.
