Still for our small amount of space we were able to garner some quality vegetables and I am sure we will continue to grow. From this experience I have come to the conclusion that the community garden is a worthwhile endeavor for any prepper in a close knit community. We will talk about the benefits tonight as well as the challenges. Continue reading Sharing the Rewards of a Community Garden!
