If I could make a living in doing what I love, I would create community gardens. First, I find such joy in helping several communities. As a Girl Scout and a member of National Society of Collegiate Scholars, I have been provided with many opportunities to help communities in different ways. However, this would be the most rewarding one. Second, I find the process of growing crops amazing and relaxing. My first goal would be finding the land to place these gardens. Sometimes this can be challenging because of the limited space in more industrialized or populated cities. Next, I would research which types of produce would thrive best in that particular climate. After, I might issue a survey for the community to see what types of produce they would like to grow. Laying the grounds for the garden would come next. I would try to make a unique environment for every community. Following that, I would plant the produce. Planting is the most exciting part. Finally, I would introduce the public to their new garden and show them how to take care of it. Ultimately, creating community gardens allows low-income families or others to have a dependable source of food. These families may therefore spend the money used for groceries on other things. Also, it creates a healthier more natural diet for children, further affecting the level of obesity. Plus, it can create a sense of pride in people. They can feel like they are making a difference too.
