A wonderful way to encourage sustainable hunger relief is to partner with an organization that integrates community gardening with agricultural education. Through the use of gardens the cycle of hunger can be broken. People learning to grow and prepare their own food can help break the cycle of hunger. Talk to your school or community relief organization about working together to build a garden that can provide education as well as fresh produce to those that need it most. Check our Katie’s Krops to see what kids across the country are doing with their gardens to fight hunger and maybe get some funding as well. Check out these cool raised garden plans.
Schools everywhere are starting to integrate gardens into the school day. They are doing things Sprout Scouts, an after school club that teaches kids how to grow, and prepare fresh fruits and vegetables.
