Promoting Sustainability in East Jefferson County, WA
In its initial incarnation as the Food Resiliency Action Group, the primary emphasis was the instigation, promotion and support of a network of neighborhood-based community gardens. By June 2009, there were over 20 such gardens in various stages of development. Most of these gardens are planted and harvested collectively, as opposed to the more common P-Patch model, where people have their own individual plots.
In addition to these community gardens where produce is shared by participants, there are also three gardens dedicated to growing and harvesting fresh, organic produce for the Port Townsend Food Bank. These gardens need more volunteers. Click HERE for more information.
