The documentary film A GARDEN EXPERIENCE: Growing Organic, has now been screened a number of times since its completion last fall. Both the Fountain Creek El Paso County Nature Centers have viewed it, local garden clubs, and other continuing education community groups. Backyard and community gardening is going through a revival!
Each time we’ve shown the film, a couple of our gardener “stars” have accompanied us and enthusiastically shared information about how and when they joined the community garden, what they planted, what successes and failures they’ve had, and how they share their produce with other community service groups.
A few weeks ago, I harvested the last of the squash from our own backyard garden to enjoy eating over the winter. After all, that’s what veggie gardening is really all about – eating good, organic, homegrown food!
