Planting may be done for this season but harvest time is on the way. The largest Urban Farmer project to date is the Kinsman Open Community Garden. If you wonder how you can help the KOCG there are multiple ways. Some possibilities for participation could include things like:
- Commitment to watering, weeding and general TLC of the garden
- Commitment to consuming the delicious food we grow
- Offering expert advice on how we could improve
- Assistance in putting that good advice into practice
- Hosting a workshop, event or potluck at the garden
- Assistance with harvest and garden clean up
- Possible improvements or expansions we could put into action at KOCG
If you would like to be part of the UF sub-committee or host a workshop on a specific topic relating to urban food call Charlie for more info @ 403.929.2909
