Gardens growing with volunteer efforts
Starting small can lead to great growth. That's what has happened with the Share the Harvest neighborhood gardens in Ellwood City, PA. Volunteers are busy getting ready for what they hope will be the best growing season so far to supply fresh produce to those in the community who need assistance. Crystal Simpson's Girl Scout group became involved with the community gardens as part of a journey. "The girls were working on a project called Sow What where they learned about where food comes from and the processes it takes to get to consumers," she said, adding that an Earth Day festival is where they met those working with the community garden and leaders of the Scouting organization decided it would be a great learning experience to plan and donate to the community.
