This latest initiative is an invitation to explore fresh opportunities to collaborate as individuals, communities, and institutions. An abundance of community and neighborhood gardens has emerged in recent years (check out the map). With new neighborhood initiatives and a large educational garden in the works, its a good opportunity to explore ways to share resources, ideas, and support in a manner that benefits everyone involved.
Local models of garden networks:
- Common Ground (Kalamazoo) (sign-up for a workshop on “Growing Community Gardens; Leading and Feeding“)
- Elkhart Local Food Alliance
- Unity Gardens (South Bend)
The Open Space event promoted below will help kick-start the process in Goshen. More than just a chance to network and share ideas, it’ll put the pieces in place to take action. Click below for more information about Open Space Technology:
