The Gift of Growing
March 2020 a global pandemic hit and the world stood still.
Our hands could not stay idle. We couldn't be fully immersed in our commUnity,
so we pivoted, which is our specialty.
We began building small garden boxes out of heat-treated pallets. Seedlings were gifted to us from friends at Alameda Greenhouse and Osuna Nursery. Dirt was gifted from Soilutions.
A new pop-up program was created in 48 hours. The community entered for a ready-to-grow garden. Boxes. Pots. Soil. Seedlings. Seeds. Thousands of possible pounds of food were put into the commUnity.
