Grow Appalachia

We have really been busy working on preparedness this past couple of weeks.  We are trying our hand at growing our own plants from seeds.  We have had some successes and some failures.  But we are learning.
We have become a part of a program called Grow Appalachia.  This is a community garden project.  Check your local areas and see if there are community gardens in which you can participate.  We will be working on a garden for ourselves, to preserve and use.  We will also be working on a community garden to give to others in the community who are less fortunate.  It is a great concept.  Our director is a wonderful man who works with many other programs to help others.  He is the director of the Laurel County African American Heritage Center.  Check out his site:  http://www.africanamericanheritagecenter.com/
Although I am not from African American descent, I do love history.
