Food empowers people, that's been true for us and it's true for others. If you know your dinner is growing in your yard, you can spend that money towards your rent, or your debt. It's a small thing, but it IS something. Peace of mind, knowing you can feed your family no matter how little money you have that week because there's lettuce and tomatoes on the patio, that's something important.
Here is a list of the services I hope to be able to provide by Spring:
-provide containers for those without space to garden traditionally
-tools to borrow
-help with tilling
-help with fencing
-help with pest control without harmful chemicals
-a basic gardening class for beginners
-a class for canning and food preservation
-free literature to borrow, gardening books, etc.
-a forum for seed swapping between gardeners, beginner and expert
-and finally, help with composting
Also, for those technophiles out there, I just made a facebook page for HHGRC.
