It Takes a Village – Hilary Quarles

With the changes in the seasons upon us, today felt like a good day to reflect on one of our favorite urban farmers… No matter the season, there’s always a need for fresh produce. We met Hillary while volunteering at the Capital Area Urban Garden. As their food growing education specialist not only does she know her gardening, but she loves to teach people how to do it. Last year they grew over 1,000 lbs of food to donate. And they taught others in the process. I guess you could say it’s a #growonegiveone model. It’s definitely a model we’re fully behind.
