Community Gardening and Urban Agriculture
Groundwork Mobile County in collaboration with Mobile Urban Growers implemented its first Green Team project that placed a focus on community gardening and urban agriculture. The program participants received training in basic food production, Business Education 101, and food pantry distribution operations as they worked across a variety of gardens located in within the city.
