GWYN, Mich. (WJMN) – Let’s Grow KI held a meeting Wednesday night to plan a community garden.
Let’s Grow KI is a non-profit organization dedicated to building more sustainable communities. Marquette County granted access to land on which she intends to grow her KI to build a community garden at the Scorpion and Tarzon site between Trout Lake and Ballfields.
They held a stakeholder meeting tonight to plan who would help with the garden. They hope the garden will help with food shortages in the community.
“We are worried about food shortages right now,” said Mallory Gray, a member of the communications committee for Let’s Grow KI. We want to basically help reduce that by feeding families who need all kinds of vegetables and fruits they can. are trying to grow their own vegetables so they can have a safer place at home.”
In addition to the community garden, the nonprofit will hold workshops to teach community members how to grow plants at home.
