|South Bend Fire Dept waters the Unity Garden & the kids!|
|Veggies for salads! No left overs today!|
But as usual, we were not only celebrating healthy eating, we were growing something more! We enjoyed meeting neighbors who wanted to hear about how to get more involved with Unity. It was great to introduce them to the firemen, other garden leaders and many of their own neighbors! I was amazed to note that we had 6 different Unity Garden leaders at this celebration, supporting one another in their "growing" efforts! All were sharing their stories; Laureen about the sudden influx of harvesters throughout her Madison Square Unity Garden, Rey discussing the successes Monroe Park has enjoyed, now in the 3rd season, and Tina, who helps keep the harvesters at LaSalle Square from going hungry when we have no more to pick at her nearby Garden of St Therese. Heather shared ground hog tips with Ricky, who has a recent unwelcome harvester lately! As I hear these and others share their visions of Unity, it is evident our community has truly come together in amazing ways to grow health! Thank you all for supporting Unity Gardens and each other!
