Sustainable community-based gardening on Finn Hill

What happens when Finn Hill land becomes available to a community of part time volunteer gardeners with a plan?  This is a question that a few of us on Finn Hill would like to investigate.

The objective is to leverage the skills of our local master gardeners to show others how to grow fresh edibles throughout the year, provide a teaching resource for our youth, demonstrate community purpose and become a reliable resource for local food banks depending on community participation.

Recently, Seeds of Change®, maker of organically grown seeds and nutritious organic food announced the return of their annual Seeds of Change® Grant Program.
