I am excited about today's release of Eat Smart, Move More North Carolina: Growing Communities through Garden. available for download at the referenced link.  How timely!  

It's almost Fall Planting Season, and many of us are thinking about how much fun it would be to have a community garden.

Diane R. Beth, MS, RD, LDN, Nutrition Unit Manager... Nutrition Branch of the NC Division of Public Health, says,

" The guide describes a community garden, its benefits, how to find or start a garden and tips for growing, storing, preparing and enjoying fruits and vegetables.  In addition, it highlights North Carolina and national gardening resources.  Whether a "community" setting (worksite, faith community, school, etc.) is considering starting a community garden or they are thinking about joining a garden near them, the primer outlines the options, steps and resources to ensure success.....  The NC-based garden photographs really show the great work going on in our state and will inspire others to either connect with existing gardens or start their own"

janeAnne, we have some wonderful community gardens around here.   I keep offering up my back yard as a possibility, but so far no takers!  It's sort of a jungle out there!

Our climate here in North Carolina is wonderful for growing all sorts of flowers and vegetables.  Thanks for the helpful links.

Community gardens are all the rage in the Richmond area. It's a great use of vacant property especially in an inner city.
