Board member Nora Stafford led us through the gardens in bloom, explaining a Manna belief:
“Everyone should be able to eat fresh, healthy food - not only government commodities.”
“Instead of a hand out, it’s a hand up.”
A grocery store is the next project, where people can select items of their choosing - another means of self-empowerment.
The Carvers of Carver’s Brewing Company are leasing personal land to Manna - two acres of extraordinary soil. From the taste of it, garden manager Kyler Grandkoski knows his stuff! We sampled juicy blackberries and grapes off the vine.
We hope to see you at the next YPOD events: See upcoming events
