THE BENDERDIGGER BEGINS – The Benderdigger will launch its first youth gardening pilot project in the River Island community of Evans this month. The Benderdigger uses funds raised at the Benderdinker to create local youth gardening projects in partnership with Augusta Locally Grown. The River Island Garden Project will feature “hugelkulture” raised beds to demonstrate the benefits of an organic, low-water system. Project coordinator Kristina Williams is currently looking for adult volunteers. Please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help. For more info, visit benderdigger.com.
