Gardens that give back: The Lord’s Acre in Fairview
We’re on the nightly news! Thanks WLOS for letting folks know ...
Bringing our community together around a home cooked lunch.
This is much more than a community garden.
Recent Citizen-Times Article by Robert Bradley
Now in our seventh growing season, this garden has brought thousands of people into the opportunity to be inspired by new ways of doing community and doing food. We don’t buy the “giver” and “receiver” labels, since we all have something to offer and all have something we need.What we do believe in is taking peoples’ strengths, passions, talents, and creativity and weaving those into solutions on issues like food security, loneliness, prejudice and the isolation of modern society. Yes, we believe a garden and the acts of learning, growing and eating food together, can accomplish all that. We believe it because we see it every day.
