MTCC - Sunburst Unlimited Summer in the Garden
 
 
 
Gardens from Garbage, sponsored by Sunburst Unlimited, Inc. in Great Falls, MT, grew out of a recognized need for local food sustainability - for the vitality of our environment and our communities. Our current food system relies heavily on transporting food grown in distant environments, which results in fuel consumption and reliance on an unsustainable system. Instead, we teach others how to grow food by nourishing what we have in our community and connecting with others who are doing the same. Sunburst Unlimited, Inc. grows fresh food for agencies like the Boys & Girls Club, Head Start, and Meals on Wheels. This project will support and increase food access for at-risk youth.
