Intentionally growing food to give away can help those in need.
The Edge Foursquare Church would like to start a community garden to serve the community at-large by using GreenStalk Vertical Planters
. This would also be a demonstration garden, to encourage community members to grow their own gardens and share from their own abundance, to reach even more people.
These GreenStalks would primarily be salad garden planters and would include varieties of lettuce, kale, swiss chard, bok choi, spinach, carrots, everbearing strawberries, and cherry tomatoes, that people would regularly use for healthy meals.
Proceeds go toward 6 Five Tier GreenStalk Vertical Planters + Movers , frost net covers, potting soil, fertilizer, and seeds for these planters.
Our community garden project manager owns a GreenStalk and has already been sharing the abundance it produces with the community. His experience with the GreenStalk Vertical Planter, growing up on a farm, and experience with raised beds caused him to realize that this would be the easiest and most productive way to do a community garden. They also help conserve on precious water resources compared to other methods. Learn about what a GreenStalk is.
