Community Gardners Read This!


If you have volunteered with your local community garden for at least 2 years and are over 21 years old this could be your day!  Robert Mondavi’s Woodbridge wine has partnered with the American Community Gardening Association to create the Giving Through Growing program in which they will award prizes totaling $40,000 to a local ‘Heroes’ who have a passion for gardening and a desire to improve their community while increasing the ability of fresh fruits and veggies in their neighborhoods.  Applicants should apply here with their ideas on how to positively impact and enrich their neighborhoods through community gardens.  Applications will be accepted until May 22 so don’t delay your submission.  I love this idea as we see more and more community gardens popping up all around town with our continued slow food focus on eating locally sourced products and garden fresh ingredients.
