The Elsmere Garden Society of Elsmere, Delaware is set to establish a community garden that will be the first of its kind not only in Elsmere but in all of Delaware. The members of Elsmere"s community will have the opportunity to participate in a volunteer based, community member operated garden that will produce a variety of vegetables, fruits, flowers, and herbs. The purpose is to increase accessiblity to fresh, organically grown food, educate the community on the benefits of gardening, local food, and healthy eating, to build community through activities and social engagement, and to increase a sense of self sufficiency thereby increasing efforts of sustainablity. The only cost to becoming a member will be to dedicate time. In order to make this project a reality, we must raise money to buy the materials necessary for building a garden that will last and be resistant to the elements. Please help us reach our goal so that we may begin building in March of 2014. For the sustainablity of our communities and the planet, it is important that we change our mentality about food and start caring more about where it comes from, how it was grown, and who is compensated. By building this garden, we will begin to address this issue at the community level. Your support is greatly appreciated and we hope to see you in the garden!
