This is Praise Harvest

Enjoy this video showcasing Praise Harvest, the urban farm managed by People of Praise members who live on the South Side of Evansville, IN.

Over the past several years, People of Praise members have been converting vacant city lots and their own backyards into gardens, with the aim of providing fresh food for their neighborhood. This year to date, the farm has grown over 6,000 lbs of produce. Among the harvest: garlic, onions, swiss chard, spinach, tomatoes, eggplant, carrots, green beans, black eyed peas, okra, sweet potatoes, cucumbers, watermelon, zinnias and, most beloved by the neighborhood, greens--collard, mustard and turnip.

Most of the yield goes to a farm stand that Praise Harvest runs every Saturday morning throughout the growing season, on the corner of one of their farm lots. There's no cost for the produce, though there's a suggested donation of $1/lb for people who can afford it.
