When we ask ourselves what we need most at Garner Grows, the answer always seems to be the same. We need more bodies. More people who enter the garden for the first time and say “I want to see this whole thing planted,” as one new member did not long ago. Right now, our membership families are carrying too much of the burden and too much of the garden lies fallow.
So the next obvious question is “How do we get more people?” There is the necessity of getting the word out, but with added emphasis on getting the word out to the right people.
So let’s carry over a dialog into the comments and brainstorm some ways to increase membership. Events? Distributing flyers and business cards? Joining Chamber of Commerce? A weekly farmstand? What other organization in the community can we enlist to help spread the word? Talk to us, gardeners!
