I live in Northern Wisconsin and have been working
to create a network of children's community gardens here. It has been
wonderfully successful and children, parents, teachers, and the greater
community seem to enjoy these projects. I have been asked by our local college
to speak with high school students from many Lake Superior communities about the
benefits of community gardens for society, environment, health, etc. The
community garden association website is a great resource and I am using it to
prepare my discussion. Can anyone out there give me some more web based
resources that would be good to look at? printed resources? words of experience?
thoughts? Please help me make this the best introduction possible to
community gardens for these students. These kids potentially will return to
their communities with action plans to initiate projects~
I really appreciate some input!
