A number of community groups, churches and neighborhood associations with whom we work appear interested in community gardening.
The combination of concerns to develop access to healthy foods, strengthen community connections, teach children about nutrition and the environment and find ways to develop new markets for goods and services drive this growing urban interest.
I've been thinking. Why not hire a full-time urban horticulturist--an urban farmer whose only job it would be to engage interested groups, organize local neighborhood efforts and coordinate the production of great, thriving community gardens?
What do you think?
Anyone you know who might be interested in such a job?
Let me know if you know someone like this.
