Grow More, Give More: Alabama Master Gardeners project nurtures a sense of community through food
The “Grow More, Give More” project is providing Alabama senior citizens with fresh produce as well as a growing sense of community, one container garden at a time.
The Alabama Master Gardeners’ “Grow More, Give More” project is changing the lives of Alabama senior citizens one container garden at a time.
Thanks to people like Larry Kronk, an Alabama Master Gardener intern, the project is able to make lasting impacts across the state. Kronk works with the container garden at the Alabaster Senior Center. This garden yielded approximately 75 pounds of produce in the first year, providing both a sense of community and nutritious food for surrounding residents.
Nearly half of Alabama’s counties are home to Master Gardner Programs. To get involved with your local chapter, click here.
