More About Pedal Patch Community
We had a chance to learn more about what Pedal Patch Community does when they were our guest at the booth on July 18th and want to share it with the community.
PPC is a nonprofit whose members are a community of everyday people who donate seeds, land and capital to bring about change. In the simplest approach possible, PPC identifies eager parties or change agents (developers, educators, mothers, fathers) and connects them to available property or land procured by PPC staff. Once the project is approve by all the stakeholders, PPC galvanizes its network of enthusiastic members and people from within the very community it is serving to lend support.
They take underutilized or vacant spaces to produce a healthy and nutritious food source while involving the community. Their biggest program is GardenShare - the property owner gets expert advice from a team of certified professionals who will help install, consult and provide weekly maintenance of a new edible landscape or raised bed garden for about the same or less cost of the prior gardening / landscape service.
