Where it all beganAs I was watching my weekly fix of Oklahoma Gardening on TV I was struck by a segment on the Oklahoma Food Bank and others desperately needing fresh produce. The brief segment, aimed at home gardeners, asked them to donate their extra crops to their local food bank.
At the time I had already been taking my extra produce, mainly cantaloupe & tomatoes, to a Faith Based student group at a local college that operates on 100% donated food. When they don’t have food, they can’t operate and people miss meals.
I realized that I had been called to do more. In the beginning I thought it was to just plant some extra plants. Then I realized that using my God given gifts, I needed to raise awareness and enlist others in this worthy cause. Alone I am limited by what I can physically plant and harvest, but united we can do so much more. Together, we can make a substantial impact on hunger and health across America.
I’m not talking about ditching the grass and filling your backyard with food producing plants, just planning a few extra plants and donating those crops. Even if you don’t have a yard, you can make an impact by container gardening indoors or out.
By utilizing the information this blog aims to provide, we will have fun and be more efficient gardeners. Saving time and money, though healthy organic gardening practices we will grow and give more.
