You might have noticed that community gardening has grown in popularity across the High Plains and the nation in recent years. Home gardeners often feel that coming together with others to nurture shared spaces to benefit one's own community gets at the root of why we love to grow, harvest, and share the bounty.
Today on Growing on the High Plains, I'll discuss these community efforts, many of which spouted of vacant urban lots -- and only because dedicated social servants decided to get their hands dirty for the greater good. Not only do these spaces produce food for those having hard times, but they also serve to educate budding gardeners and occupy unemployed workers looking for something positive to contribute.
Like these community gardens, so grows public radio. Plant a seed for YOUR station and help HPPR continue cultivating a shared space for ideas, news, and music. Like a basket of ripe, homegrown vegetables, HPPR provides so much to nourish our bodies and minds -- but they cannot do it without your support.
