Unity Gardens

Have you heard of Unity Gardens in South Bend? After the Earth Day Celebration, I saw this little plot tucked in a nearby corner. I learned about them on Facebook first and then keep hearing about them all over the place. They offer FREE gardening classes, various events, community plot programs, and pick for free gardens. Wow! I met several of the members and saw a panel at the Transition Michiana event. These organized people are helping bring fresh, local food to the people by encouraging them to grow, grow, grow more than just vegetables. They grow community, skills, friendships, and more. Here is a video with Experience Michiana about their classes.

They are a dedicated group of people who are helping spread the word about growing! They have a unique mission statement and story. They work hard to accomplish it!
