Community Garden

 This past week Mario and I decided it would be a good idea to go get some exercise and our walk/run led us to the local community garden. As a kid I was always fascinated by plants and the skill it takes to grow food. I have a dead green thumb, I've tried growing plants, and food in my own home and let me just tell has not worked out very well.
 It honestly takes a lot of skill and dedication to make something grow, especially food that has the ability to sustain a community. I loved exploring all the food and plants with Mario, it was fun taking pictures and even though it is the middle of October in Washington, somehow it was still warm  enough for us to explore.

 Everything was so beautiful and we even got to see some of the local families who sustain the garden, but we also realized that a lot of the food that was grown was not being eaten or taken into any home or shelter, it was perishing on the ground. People starve for food everyday and here we were standing in the community garden that is suppose to be a very positive part of who we are and I couldn't help but feel guilty.
 As we left the garden I was happy because I had such a good afternoon with someone I care about, but I was also left with the question of : how valuable and productive is a community garden if the people in the community are not benefiting from it?
