PatchCast: Church Celebrates New Garden on Home Farming Day
Common Ground Christian Church breaks ground on a new community garden it will harvest to feed the needy.
Urban Farming got its start in Detroit in 2005 and has now planted 800 gardens in 29 states. The purpose of the organization is to transform vacant urban spaces into a source of fresh food for the surrounding community.
The church will partner with local food banks and homeless shelters to deliver the produce to hungry people.
Tuesday's ground breaking celebrated Home Farming Day and was simulcast to the web along with the creation of 14 other new gardens being planted across the country in the same project.
