The Halifax Garden Network is an informal grouping of urban gardeners and community food workers. We now have a website, a listserve and a blog, but even more importantly we have more and more community run gardens and amazing gardeners every year. I have watched our community learn so many new skills and build beatiful garden spaces all around town and this summer we’d like to see more of these gardens up here on this blog.
This blog is OUR blog, us gardeners and foodies and community builders. We’d love to hear what’s happening in your community or school garden, see some pictures, learn more about an awesome trellis you built, or a new favorite heirloom seed you are growing. Don’t be nervous about the writing, use your own words and we’re happy to help with editing.

The focus of the project is conserving farm land, resources, and knowledge in order to have ecological food production now and in the future. The guiding principle of the work is to ‘face the sun’, focusing on positive initiatives much like the sunflower would.
They are a rural project, but even if you don’t have a car you can take a gander and keep up on their news at their new blog. Take a peek and spread the word.
