Let’s move: community gardens
This topic has been recurring within our society down through the ages. Every time there is an economic downturn, we as a society go back to community to share and assist one another. Hence, community gardening brings people of the communities together. In this process, people are making the move to become healthier and less stressed.
I believe in helping to raise the awareness of others on how to become healthier and how to enable people to take charge of their destiny in any economic crisis. That is why I am a board member of the American Community Gardening Association as chair of the grant/fundraising committee.
The American Community Gardening Association is a bi-national nonprofit organization of professionals, volunteers and supporters of community greening in urban and rural communities. ACGA serves the United States and Canada.
