Home Garden Network (HGN) is developed in response to common issues most of our families experience--lack of time, lack of knowledge and skills, and/or lack of inspirations to get our edible home garden started. This project thus uses a network of families to develop edible home gardens for one family's home at a time for everyone within the network to enjoy their own fresh green plants. Through gardening activities, families are then growing, learning, and healing together.
How The Program Works
