 Each year in Toledo, we send "renewal" applications to community gardens who 
want to be a part of Toledo GROWs.  One of the items on the application asks 
the garden leader to note one or two positive things that happened in their 
garden or because of your garden in the previous year.  This year I typed up 
some of the quotes, to send to a potential funder.  I thought I'd share them 
with you:  
  Mulberry & Noble Street Neighborhood Garden: "Kept weeds and grass down, 
produced food for community"
  Kids Kare (East Toledo Family Center) Garden: "One of the boxes of food was 
donated to a nursing home.  All the items were used for food within the 
center and its families."
  Youth Treatment Center Garden: "Rick (Garden Leader) from Teneyck Towers 
did a good job watering our garden when we were not available to come. Kids 
enjoyed the privilege of going to the garden."
  St. James Head Start: "People have said the garden definitely adds warmth 
to the school entrance and makes the building more inviting.  The children 
really enjoyed planting their tiny plants outdoors-digging, watering and 
handling; observing the earthworms."
  Monroe Street Community Garden: "The children and youth and adults of the 
neighborhood center programs took ownership of the garden and took care of it 
as well as picked the fruits of it.  The children and youth began to learn 
about gardening process from planting to harvest."
 Mercy Garden: "Got our garden shed and was able to consolidate all our 
garden tools.  Fence remained in place this year-no need to have to remove 
for tilling."
 Maywood Avenue Garden: "After a late start in planting, I was very pleased 
with the production of the garden.  Had plenty of vegetables to distribute 
with neighbors."
 Harbor House: "In our garden during the year 2002, we were able to produce 
wonderful vegetables to eat."
 Helping Hands/St. Louis:  "We produced over 400 pounds of vegetables to give 
away!  Church is letting us use the garage."
  Gesu School Garden: "The butterfly garden was a huge success, as were other 
areas.  Created good community spirit among the gardeners."
  Boston Street Garden: "We grew lots of vegetables and learned about soil 
 We are stardust  .  .  . we are golden  .  .  . and we've got to get 
ourselves back to the garden.
