Project -- Community Gardening

At least half of Building Delmarva's Sustainable Food Shed requires 'growing' farmers capable of sustainably producing the food to meet the nutritional requirements of the Peninsula's eaters. LESSON celebrates community involvement in and commitment to this effort. We support the Berlin Branch Library Demonstration Garden which donates its produce to a non-profit supporting Veterans. We work with SU students in Service Learning to build a Sustainable Food Forest & Living Art Garden as a celebration of indigenous and native foods as well as those that like the lower shore's climate. LESSON supports the work of students at Washington College to establish a sustainable garden for food production and marketing and we support the work of local teachers who develop and nurture gardens and their students at the same time. Community support of food gardens in all their forms educate, engage, and encourage sustainable practices in food production as well as the development of sustainable people and sustainable communities. We welcome your contribution -- ideas, suggestions, connections, time, energy, money -- we'll take any and all of it.
