Plan a Community Garden - Grow Local A Problem based Learning Project
Your town is encouraging residents to "Grow Local". They are allowing residents to use one acre of land to plant a community garden. The idea is to grow your own herbs, berries and vegetables. Locally grown food avoids using gasoline to transport them long distances. You enjoy the goodies fresh from the vine. In some cases, a few seeds can yield lots of delicious herbs, berries or vegetables. You save a lot of money compared with buying them in the store. The gardeners can decide whether or not to use pesticides or fertilizers. It also empowers people grow things that are not sold at the big box stores.
Offer some advice/suggestions about the best herbs and vegetables to grow in your area.
