Together WE can do more. The theme for our upcom- ing 2013-2014 campaign was inspired by two things. The first being the five counties we call home-Lincoln, Lyon, Murray, western Redwood, and Yellow Medicine and the people who reside here. Through the building blocks of education, income (finan- cial stability), health, safety & well-being, and united against hunger we can affect true community change right here...right now...together. The second was an article written by Hildy Gottlieb entitled, Community Engagement: Gardening in the Front Yard that ran in the June 4th issue of the Huffington Post. The article described how planting a gar- den in your front yard instead of the typical backyard garden is what community engagement is all about. The article went on to illustrate that by gardening in the front yard a community is able to see the hard work, sweat, and effort behind the success. It fosters two- way communication...where all parties learn and grow from each other. Relationships grow and deepen. Barriers come down. Individuals feel connected and invested in whether the garden (or com- munity) grows and flourish- es.
