Guerilla gardening

22 07 2009

Bobcat DougIn April of this year a group of friends and I decided to plant a garden in a bright, sunny spot at our church where we would grow vegetables for the Raleigh Interfaith Food Shuttle. In this picture I’m just starting to break ground for the new bed. So far we’ve taken over 100 pounds of tomatoes, cucumbers, yellow squash and zucchini to the Food Shuttle. We hope to have a nearly year-round source of vegetables to share with the community. I’d encourage you and your friends to help feed the hungry with a similar community garden plot!

Doug-Thanks for your creativity and dedication to fighting hunger! The fresh fruits and vegetables you donate make an impact on children, seniors and families in need all across the Greater Triangle.

I want to make sure that credit goes where it is due. These vegetables we grow for the Interfaith Food Shuttle and the “plant a row” program are a collective effort by the St. Giles Presbyterian Church congregation.

Doug is being too modest. He and his family have done a great job with the setup and maintenance of the garden. Others have certainly helped, but without the efforts of The Honey Do Husband this would have been much more difficult, and I suspect would not be nearly as successful.

Summer garden’s out; fall garden is in: collards, Swiss chard, cabbage, and broccoli sets. Carrots, scallions, lettuce and spinach from seed.
