Help #WeSowWeGrow Win a Garden Grant!

Well, well, well. I’m stepping out for the We Sow, We Grow Community Garden Initiative and applying for a grant from Seeds Of Change! It’s a grant process that I missed last year because we didn’t start the garden before the time, and well, you live and you learn. I’m excited to see if we can get much needed funding in supporting our movement! If you follow #WeSowWeGrow on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook, you’ll see all of the great things that we and everyone else is up to!

If you’re so inclined you can vote >HERE< daily! Voting for the first round ends on 4/19 and if we make it, voting for THAT round will end sometime before May, and grant recipients will be notified. We’re hoping that we’re one of them, and that you help us get there!

By no means do I claim to be a master gardener, but I do know that I have a passion for growing food, AND learning about it in the process. My mistakes will save you from making your own. So, stay tuned each week to see what I’m learning or sharing, and make sure to join the Facebook group to ask your own questions, or show off your own goodies! We’re a supportive bunch, and we love seeing what everyone is growing in different zones. Like those folks down in Florida that can grow mangoes? I’m really jealous!

Case in point about learning as I grow. We grew watermelon last year! It was our second year trying, and it was the most delicious watermelon I have every had the pleasure of eating. If you grew one, you’d say the same. 

We also grew all types of greenery, tomatoes (22 different varieties), squash, peppers, and whatever else you can think of. You also see me in the middle of the bed of corn that we grew. All 132 ears of it. I was SO proud of this garden, and the connections that we made in the community. We made strides in a new community, and it was all from the planting of a little seed.

Now go on ahead and vote for us, and please cast a vote daily until the 19th of this month! Thank you so much!

    That is amazing. I love community gardens. They’re such a great way to get the community together and for everyone to get back to nature. That’s something that too many people don’t do anymore.

    That looks absolutely amazing! I wish there was a lot more community gardens out there because I think that if people are more active in what they eat they will be aware of what is healthy and what is not.

    I love gardening and always enjoying seeing and hearing about other’s gardens. Yours is absolutely amazing — I’ve grown many veggies and herbs successfully, but have never been able to bring a watermelon as gorgeous as yours to maturity. Here’s to a great summer of fresh air in your garden.

    Community gardens are a great way to provide fresh produce to those who don’t have access. I can’t wait to read more about your garden.

    Eating something you have grown tastes so much better than store bought. I went ahead and voted for your community garden. I hope it wins the grant.
