From Toxic Free NC news-------------
Briggs Avenue Community Garden is located in an area of Durham where most children and families live at or below the poverty line. The garden is a place where food is grown for families and where community members fellowship, share skills and learn about pesticide-free gardening. Right now they have more than 40 community-maintained plots, but are expanding next year to accomodate even more gardeners.
A beehive in the garden will add to their mission of educating local residents about organic gardening. And it will help to grow even more healthy pesticide-free food for their community!
