FEED A FAMILY OF FOUR
With 400 sqft an active gardener should be able to grow enough vegatables to feed a typical family.
At $40/$70 for a season (depending on size of plot) it is an economical way to grow $600 -$1,000 of food.
Situated on the NCC land, and a main bus route make the site the most accessible location for most people.
Gardening is a very peaceful activity that is proven to reduce stress. If that doesn’t cut it for you, take a break and watch the baby goats instead.
