How Community Gardens Help the Underprivileged


If you have a way with gardening and a heart for helping those less privileged, then raising a garden or creating a community garden is one way to serve the community well. Let Madeinoz help you transform your gardening knowledge and abilities, to help you grow healthy fruits and vegetables right from your own garden.


Ways to help the less fortunate


Starting a garden of fresh fruits and vegetables often ends with a surplus supply that could be donated to those less fortunate.


● There are certain fruits and vegetables that yield a greater crop than others. Tomatoes, zucchini, lettuce, cucumbers, and carrots tend to grow in abundance.

● Besides getting the opportunity to feed your family nutritiously, you can donate your excess crop to soup kitchens and your local food bank.

● You can also use this opportunity to each others how to start their own gardens.


Giving off the impression of a well-cared-for city


When people take pride in their gardens and homes, there is a general consensus amongst everyone to keep things nice and tidy all around.


Starting your own garden patch might inspire you to put more effort into your curb appeal.

● Since the exterior of your home is the first thing prospective buyers lay their eyes on, making sure you invest wisely in this area can actually increase the appraisal value of your property.

● Apart from your garden, you might also want to pay attention to the state of your windows, your roof, your deck or patio, and your front door to ensure these are in tip-top condition, as these can also add considerable value to your home - when in good shape!


Do good for the environment


Planting trees, gardens, and shrubbery is excellent for the environment.


Plants add more oxygen to the air, which is why many successful companies are dedicated to planting trees as part of giving back.

The community can learn to compost waste. This, in turn, helps to minimize greenhouse gasses which, in turn, affects global warming positively.

● Other ways to reduce your carbon footprint include minimizing your energy usage, recycling, reducing your water usage, and, of course, planting your own veggie patch.


As can be seen, learning how to garden and sharing your knowledge for others to benefit from doesn't only have immediate benefits, but it also has overarching benefits for the community and the world.
