Sharing Shelf & Garden Leaders
What started as a shelf behind the sign at the LaSalle Square Unity Garden to put a few extra goodies on has become alot more . It has become somewhat of a sharing shelf . Folks have started bringing extra stuff from their gardens and dropping it off on the shelf to share with others , and every morning the shelf is empty . Nothing goes to waste . Its pretty cool something so simple as giving away extra veggies instead of letting them go to waste .
Over the next month or so we are going to interview all of our garden leaders , and post it on the blog . The Garden Leaders are the Backbone of what makes the gardens work . The are people who wanted to start gardens , grow healthy food ,and share with others . They come from all walks of life , and do it for many reasons . They come to us for a little support . We tray to give them what they need to get started , and keep the garden , but they are the ones doing all the hard work , and they are the ones with the vision for their garden . So look for the interveiws coming soon .
