Atlanta, GA, October 01, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- The World Food Garden has partnered with two organizations, Dinner Garden and Ample Harvest, to provide support to home and community gardeners and to promote food security for all. They are calling it a 123 Partnership. For Step 1, The Dinner Garden provides free fruit and vegetable seeds, gardening support, and advice to individuals, families, and communities. The Dinner Garden seeks to end hunger in the United States through backyard and community gardens.
For Step 2, World Food Garden provides planting information, like what plants work in a particular area and when those plants should be planted. They also have gardening mentors to answer gardening questions, tutorials on how to garden, and ways to connect to other gardeners to share tips or trade seeds.
These first two steps provide the resources for these gardeners to grow food. They have the seeds, the information on how to garden, and assistance when they encounter problems.
Finally, for Step 3, Ample Harvest gives gardeners a way to donate their excess produce to food pantries. Ample Harvest connects gardeners to food pantries in their area. Food pantries are always in need of fresh produce. Home gardeners typically grow far more than they can eat. Putting the two together provides food pantries with a great source of fruit and vegetables.
By growing food at home, families in need will have food to eat. They will lift themselves out of food insecurity and greatly improve their nutrition. They, in turn, will help other needy families by donating their excess produce to food pantries. Those families will then have fresh produce, which will improve their diets.
