"17,000 ft Communal 'Cornucopia' Garden - Free

gardening for 100+ volunteers

Growing food for the local charities

Growing food for an Urban Garden Cooperative, allowing Produce shares to be bought

Buying from a Cooperative allows you to know exactly where your vegetables come from and the people who grow them which could include you! As a bonus, the Cooperative shares go back into the program to help community gardeners to continue growing food for their families and helps to ensure inner city land will be saved for food production and you are supporting your community. "

 

"The goal is to produce 4000 lbs of produce, donate 1000 lbs to charity, and allow the rest to be bought as 'shares'."
