Growing the Future

Yesterday I enjoyed the final Fall Harvest taste test event created by the Backyard Growers Program in Gloucester. Mayor Sefatia Romeo Theken and I met many young participants in this amazing program that teaches people how to raise, and eat, food that they can grow themselves. The Backyard Growers have built more than 150 raised bed gardens, served hundreds of residents and worked with students from preschool to 6th grade to learn how to grow.
