Whether it’s the economy, the First Lady’s inspiration or just a hunger for fresh, really local food, home gardening across the country is up 40 per cent and seed source businesses are booming. According to food writer Michael Pollan, for an investment of about $80, you will get $600 worth of local, delicious produce in a typical home garden.
But what if you don’t have enough space or for a backyard garden? Consider community gardening.
There are eight plots still available at Native Earth Teaching Farm, along North Road in Chilmark.
