Garden to Table

The "Eagan Resource Center" foodshelf has worked with the community to create gardens in several locations around the city to grow fresh produce for its clients. This garden stands next to Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church.

  1. Who are the "clients"...the gardeners or people in need? I don't think the issue re. House of Hope's fence for their garden for poor folks has been resolved yet.

  2. Great initiative. I hope it will work fine. I have seen so many gardens (not necessarily for poor people) in California. There people sometimes convert their flower garden into a vegetable garden. I have also seen several vegetable gardens near schools, which I found an excellent way to teach kids to be self-sufficient and to respect nature.

  6. I am a fan of community gardens in concept, but alas, I am not a vegetable gardener. I like the colorful and frivolous flowers.
