“Whether you live in an apartment building, or you live downtown and you have a small yard, or you have ten acres, we want to teach you how you can take what you have around you and grow organic food,” said Bo in a recent piece put together by Bus52.com. “I believe we all have one life to live, and we need to live it to the fullest of our ability.”

Thanks to the vision of one local man with a heart for the needy, and the efforts of hundreds of his neighbors, the Greenville area will soon have access to free, organic produce as part of a new initiative known as The Generous Garden Project(GGP).

What began as a personal mission to feed the hungry fresh, nutritious produce quickly blossomed into a community-wide endeavor to establish a working, community farm where anyone in need can come and access free food, no questions asked. Eventually, Bo and his crew of several hundred local volunteers hope to begin teaching others how to grow food themselves.

“We are working to fight hunger in a slightly different way by growing and harvesting fresh produce and then giving it away to local ministries and food banks,” says The Generous Garden Project website about its mission. “It is a known fact that if people get fresh fruits and veggies in their diet, they think more clearly, have more energy and live more fruitful lives. We are here to fight hunger one garden at a time.”
