We all have moments when we doubt ourselves. For me this happened this spring when the Humanity House Community Garden was under floodwaters for nearly a week, making its harvest inedible and forcing us to wait until the first of September to replant.
Instead of focusing on the loss, we redirected our energy into building repairs and painting, thanks to help from the Allen County commissioners. We also restructured the garden area in hopes of bringing even more produce to the table next year.
Lots of days, I am the only person working at the garden. That in itself is a full-time job. My dad used to come by and give me grief about it. Why arent some of those people who come and get this food down here working? They want the food but they dont want to do the work?
