Provide fresh organic produce to local businesses, and integrate young people into the sustainable practices related to growing organic produce to promote a peaceful lifestyle.
The Hamilton crop circle is a group of local volunteers who have come together to help their community discover the benefits of growing fresh local organic produce. As the relationship between the group and the community continued to grow, so did their awareness of the benefits of living a more local sustainable life. It became apparent that living a healthy happy lifestyle had many natural benefits that many in the community had not yet experienced. In order to assist those in need, the crop circle started sharing food with other members of the community besides its volunteers. Local restaurants became interested in purchasing the fresh locally grown organic produce for their valued customers. More opportunities emerged to engage the community in the garden initiatives. A local community school was looking for an organization to partner with that would allow the teachers, the students and the staff to become more involved in what was happening in this community. Having a community garden on the school grounds has had a tremendous positive benefit already, and the energy that is surrounding this project is immeasurable. The students along with all of those who are involved are greatly looking forward to working together in the future to show the benefits that gardening can have at every level of our community. The potential for the students to learn about the benefits of working with local businesses and other groups in the community are endless. As we continue to grow we will always be thankful for the opportunity to work together and grow together in order to live a peaceful life.
