The Key West Community Garden was first planted in 2008 and has since provided hundreds of pounds of organic food for more than 40 families.
The project demonstrates resource conservation by collecting and recycling tens of thousands of gallons of rainwater. Tons of organic “waste” has been rescued from the incinerator through composting, which produces homegrown soil teeming with nutrients.
The garden, which also hosts public workshops, is open to individuals, families and student groups, among others, and is so popular there is a waiting list for participation.
