The nutrients and energy captured in these beautiful plants are about to be distributed throughout the community by the hands of skillful chefs and eager mouths, making each one who shares the meal just a little bit healthier and happier. But these aren’t the only beneficiaries in this network. The growers were enriched by witnessing the soil, water, air and sunlight interact with a seed, a seedling, a little plant and the mature flora. The neighbourhood in which the plants grew also took part in the experience, watching the transformation from lawn to harvest, with anticipation and fascination.
