For four years now, a previously vacant lot has been being transformed into a lush space of community food production. Dozens of dirty hands have created one of the most beautiful and free spots in Carbondale, contributing to the creative, caring, and even rebellious vibe on Washington Street. The Garden’s actions were an inspiration — maybe even the inspiration — for our Food Autonomy proposal. When you see a sliver of the world transformed into something astounding, its easier to ask yourself: what if everything were more like this?
We are very grateful for the endorsement of our project by the Washington Street Garden. They are currently having a fundraiser for this coming growing season. Please check out their website and help them out if you can!
