Asheville Church Gardens for Food Banks





QUOTE: "That's one of the beauties of having it [the garden] part of the community and part of the church. People who don't know each other get to work side by side." —Buzz Durham, who organized a community garden at Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church in Asheville, N.C. The quarter-acre plot on the church’s property is tilled by 25 different families, all of whom agree to donate at least 50 percent of their produce to local food banks. [citizen-times.com, 6/7/10]
