Garland Speaks with BDN About Community Gardens

Kate Garland, a horticulturist with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, was interviewed by the Bangor Daily News for an article about Maine’s increase of community gardens. “I think it’s due to the interest in locally sourced food but also knowing where your food comes from, and a lot of folks are realizing they don’t have the resources they need in their backyard,” Garland said of the increase. The article also included tips from UMaine Extension on how to organize a community garden.
