I love the Community Garden...

Phazes has joined forces with the Community garden and Hurricane High School's FFA (Future Farmers of America) club.  Each week The FFA and Community (Common Ground Hurricane Valley school and community garden).  Lisa Atkin oversees the Garden, Dustin Dayley leads the HHS FFA Club and The city of Hurricane is a sponsor of the program as well.  The program is teaching organic gardening and farming to the future of our country.  I couldn't be more excited about this whole endeavor.  Truly our nations health will be changed by programs like this.  For those of us that do not have access to land for our own garden or lack the time and means to plant and prepare our own soil and care for an organic Garden, The community garden is the perfect answer for us.

Each week the kids in the FFA harvest their produce and bring it over to PHAZES to sell at conventional prices!  What this means to you?
You do not have to pay more for organic food!  This is a great way to "get to know your farmer".  knowing exactly where you food comes from, what chemicals have been used and if the seeds have been genetically altered (none of which occurs at Common Grounds) is the best control you have over your daily food intake.  You have very little control  or knowledge of the farming methods used in bigger chain stores and what kind of farming methods are used to bring food to the shelves. This translates to how it sits on your body and the kind of illnesses you and your family may experience.

This is REAL Health reform!

So visit us every week -
MONDAYS 10:30-11:30am and get some REAL FOOD!

Funds raised go to support the community garden in seed, livestock, purchasing and care.  As well as support the FFA in their efforts to raise funds for the program.
It's a great thing all around for all of us!
