A Marquette–area effort to get residents growing more of their own food has taken off.
But now organizers want to get it flying.
The 100 YARDen DASH challenges Marquette–area residents to convert at least part of their yards into a food–producing garden.
The Dash organizers have achieved their goal of a hundred new gardens, but they’re trying for more.
The organizers say locally grown food is more nutritious than what you would buy at most grocery stores, because as soon as food is harvested, it begins to lose nutrients.
The 100 YARDen DASH website and the Transition Marquette website both have information on how to get started.
