the project

We started Cowan Gardens in 2015 and have been growing Scallions, Broccoli, Collard Greens, Garlic, Kale,turnips, radishes, carrots, beets, Cilantro, rasberrys, eggplant, Char, and Potatoes.   Currently I have to borrow tools to maintain my garden and am not able to maintain it to the standard I would like.  

the steps

With your donations I will be able to buy the supplies and tools needed to grow cowan gardens to produce 50 percent more vegetables!!!  

why we're doing it

Cowan Gardens is a source of relaxation and meditation for me.  This garden allows me to show my kids and my community that we can grow our own food and can get out there and get our hands dirty and make something beautiful happen.
