Imagine a vacant lot transformed into a productive garden, yielding bouquets of flowers and baskets of vegetables. Apply the same metaphor to homeless men and women, finding the rich soil of a cooperative project that gives them work, safety and community.

You now have a sense of the elegantly simple concept of this garden project. Here is a model that includes employment and training, the fundraising benefits of organic produce marketing, and the healing of the human spirit. Solutions to many of the problems facing our communities may be in our own backyards!

Music from Nancy Griffith, Neil Young, Tuck & Patti and others. Narrated by Harrison Ford.
