The Issue

More and more people are coming to local food organizations due to hunger.

Project Description

There are three projects, which have been running for five years and are successful in gardening. The first project is for younger children and involves planting sunflowers. The second project alternates between salsa-and-pickle gardening. Finally, the third project is based on experimental gardening. Kids and families are educated on gardening and given tips on expert growth. Inyo-Mono Gardening Projects plan to donate any extra food supplies to Salvation Army, IMACA Food Bank, and Methodist Church Soup Kitchen. Last year an estimated 150 pounds of produce were distributed to hungry families through the three organizations. This project gives hungry families hope.
