Community Garden Rainwater Harvesting Freebie!

Via Therese Ciesinski, Senior Editor: Organic Gardening Magazine

Do you know a community garden that could use the
donation of a rainwater harvesting system?

Last year, Organic Gardening magazine provided
rainwater harvesting systems to 20 community gardens
around North America as part of our Waterworks
project. The effort was a great success. Our sponsors,
Aveeno and Nature’s Path, gained a true appreciation
for the important benefits community gardens bring to
their participants and neighborhoods.

We are planning to bring this program to 15 more
gardens in 2008. Right now, we are in search of worthy
gardens to consider for this year’s program. To that
end, we have posted an application on our Website,
which you will find here (along with brief profiles of
the gardens we worked with last year):,7518,s1-2-10-1531,00.html

She invites you to apply for any garden you are involved
with and ask that you please share this with any other
community gardeners you are in touch with.
