How Does Your Garden Blog?

There’s always something interesting happening in a community garden. Every garden season has its activities, moods, sights, sounds, smells and tastes. Community gardens in Houghton and Hancock, conceived and maintained by residents dedicated to creating sustainable communities and to growing and eating local food, provide great examples you can visit in person and on-line.

Here’s the Pewabic Street (Houghton) Community garden blog link: http://pewabicstreetcommunitygarden.blogspot.com/

This is the Ryan Street (Hancock) Community Garden link: http://ryanstreetgarden.blogspot.com/

Both gardens provide gardening space to city residents and are places where children and adults can learn more about gardening and nutrition. They each have many volunteers and many partners, among them the Western U.P. Health Department, which helped them to receive funding from the Michigan Department of Community Health’s Building Healthy Communities grant program.
