Grow a Garden, Feed the Homeless

Growing a garden seems to be one of the strangest things among the things we find difficult to do these days. It’s strange because just 100 years ago most of us could—and would—do it, and 100 years before that, most of us probably did do it simply for survival. Today the power of growing has been taken out of most of our hands, the skills lost along the way as we were ironically educated and left unable to grow our own food and feed ourselves.
