When Vivant founder Kasey Eaves was just starting her gardening side hustle, a new community garden in process reached out for help getting their garden to grow. Now she is one of the Volunteer Leaders of the garden, in addition to her duties as owner of Vivant. Our interns split their time between MMCG and Vivant to learn the differences of for-profit and non-profit garden work and to test their leadership skills with the gardens many volunteers.
Montrose Metra Community Garden and Vivant Gardening Services have grown side by side in Ravenswood and so it only makes sense that we share their exciting news. With a wait list of over 70 families, the garden is planning to expand and build new raised beds so more local neighbors can grow their own organic produce.
