Grow Food, Grow Hope Demonstration Garden

The Grow Food, Grow Hope Demonstration Garden was opened in June of 2009 at the J.W. Denver Williams Memorial Park in Wilmington, with the purpose of demonstrating that a considerable amount of food can be grown in a relatively small amount of space. The Demonstration Garden serves as yet another opportunity for community members to see how easy and beneficial at-home and community gardening can be!

The garden is maintained by GFGH and community volunteers. The beds are split into four sections which feature a wide variety of vegetables and herbs. In the beds are: green beans, muskmelon, nasturtiums, cucumbers, squash, garlic, turnips, radishes, kohlrabi, onions, tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, eggplant, various herbs and a covercrop of buckwheat.

Grow Food, Grow Hope is constantly looking into new ways to involve children in local food initiatives and gardening in general.

I would appreciate more visual materials, to make your blog more attractive, but your writing style really compensates it. But there is always place for improvement
