Tuesday March 27 at 7:00 pm the DeKalb County Community Gardens group will hold their third organizing meeting at the Unitarian Church at 158 North 4th Street in DeKalb. All citizens interested in being a part of this effort to ease hunger in our county and build community at the same time are urged to attend.
“We have over 20 dedicated individuals from clergy, social service agencies, farmers, the U of Illinois Extension Master Gardeners, DeKalb Area Gardening Club, educators, and others who care about the issue of hunger as well as the desire to see more wholesome vegetables available to more citizens.” Said Dan Kenney co-coordinator of the group. “We want to provide an opportunity for people to provide for themselves. This is about teaching folks to fish not just handing them a fish.”
The project is creating a non-profit organization that is dedicated to supporting and initiating community gardening opportunities for citizens through out DeKalb County.
