Minnesota has been long known to be the land of 10,000 lakes. But what if we could also be known as the land of 10,000 giving gardens? Minnesota has the perfect environmental and social climate to support an idea like this. Just think of all the good we can do - all the healthy, local food and friendships that can be grown. Gardening is fun and rewarding, and can be done just about anywhere - a school yard, church land, corporate campus, roof top, containers, raised beds... A few friends, a few strangers (who will become friends), a handful of seeds, a little dirt, a little water, and a little TLC can result in 100s of pounds of food for those in need. It truly is amazing.
We challenge you Minnesota to become the land of 10,000 giving gardens!
