Why It Works

This a true community garden planted and maintained by volunteers. This garden's harvest is distributed freely to the elderly and homebound of Madison County, Alabama. It is the most community-oriented community garden of its type in the U.S. In 2001, this 1/3 acre garden harvested over 19,000 pounds of vegetables, helping feed over 7,500 of our community's senior citizens.
