Tilling the garden, pulling the weeds, hoeing earth and watering the plants are just a few of the wonderful joys of gardening. Pumpkins are wonderful community garden vegetables. Green vines attaching everywhere, beautiful orange flowers and festival gourds are fun to watch and fill the table. Baking pumpkin pie in the fall or carving pumpkins for Halloween, children especially enjoy the garden. Corn that grows ten feet tall brings the sweetest, abundant store to feed a community several times over. Green beans and cucumbers also are perfect garden vegetables that grow hearty with abundant produce.
Community gardens teach kids about sustaining life and feeding themselves. These gardens remind young adults that food begins with care and healthy food is worth the effort. In today’s fast-paced society it can be difficult to maintain community gardens. Just agree ahead of time on watering, weeding and feeding chores.
Community gardens with as few as six fruits or vegetables, beans or gourds yield dozens of table ready meals when properly tended. Strawberries thrive and produce a high yield to support the community table. Cheaper than the supermarket and pesticide-free, community gardens produce a plethora of bountiful goodies sufficient enough to feed the entire community.
