Growing a Greener World

Community Gardens: Growing So Much More Than Plant

Season 7, Episode 11 of 26

Having an opportunity to participate in a community garden builds a sense of community like nothing else. It provides opportunities for exercise, education, therapy, relaxation and social interaction, along with preserving green space and conserving resources. By looking at several prime examples of community gardens in action, this episode demonstrates how the benefits of a neighborhood garden can reach far beyond the garden gates, bringing people closer to the earth and to each other. In the kitchen, Chef Nathan uses kale fresh from the garden to create a ribollita, also known as a Tuscan vegetable and bread soup.
