Green Acres…

SH Community GardenIt’s the 41st anniversary of National Agriculture Week, and it is celebrated in classrooms and communities across the nation.

What a perfect time to tell all you out there about our Safety Harbor Common Ground Community Garden. It was founded in 2009 and sits on an acre of land, with it’s own well to supply hydration to approximately 30 10×10 plots.

Fennel, kale, carrots, squash…it’s all good. From beginning gardeners to the gardening gurus, the Safety Harbor Common Ground Community Garden is full of veggie enthusiasts ready to share ideas, create, connect and experience the delicious fruits of their labor.

In essence, they have created their own little community on common ground. They work together to keep the overall look of the gardens esthetically pleasing to view, they trade seeds and plants and they get together regularly just to socialize. Sound like a pretty solid community with common goals, joining together to grow the good life…don’t ya think???

Pictured are some of the garden members. They were getting ready to enjoy some of their harvest at their pot luck picnic.
