Today was a busy day. I ran a 5k race and did pretty well and after which I linked up with a new established Community organizer for Columbus, Ga first ever Community Garden. It was a humbling experience to be around Nathan, Jonathan, and Dan. These guys have put words into action.
The vision is to orchestrate a functional community garden that is community self sufficient. There are many challenges along the way. But each will be met by volunteers who want to have a part in making the unsustainable sustainable. Everyday the word is getting out and with a little more each day the Garden of feedin will reach it's objective and that's to provide a healthy alternative for the homeless and activities for the public to partake that will contribute to the health of the community.
Today we talked about compost and water catchment systems. I could have talked forever and ever. These guys are great. they are all about action and within minutes we were setting stakes for where the compost bins would be placed. Outstanding!!
