Project Feed the Hood kicked off its second season of community gardening on Saturday, April 16th by planting seeds and working the soil with community members at the International District Community Garden.
Project Feed the Hood’s lead gardeners were on hand to talk to people about their community gardening philosphy, as well as to show people how to participate with their work.
People prepared the raised beds for tomato starter plants donated by East Central Ministries, learned about seeds and transplants, prepared rows for planting, and even took some small plants to grow at home and prepare to be planted back at the community garden.
City Councilor Rey Garduño, who helped secured the land and materials for the International District Community Garden, was also on hand to speak to the crowd and help the second season of gardening get off to a great start.
Please join us in the garden, at a workshop or just to help out. We’re looking forward to a great growing season!
