Lynda Mink, garden manager at Dunedin Community Garden, wants people to know the importance of her greatest hobby: gardening.
Mink told participants of The Great Garden-to-Beer Trolley Tour that junk food is cheaper to buy and produce, and that's no good for people's health. Not to mention, she said, there's no telling what types of pesticides or other chemicals contaminate non-organic produce.
Organic gardening is a revolution, she said. (Watch the Patch video above.)
The Dunedin Community Garden, was the first stop on part of a recent Jolley Trolley charter tour, organized by garden volunteers, that sought to encourage and educate consumers on how to shop smarter, buy more locally-produced food and beverages, and how to ask the right questions about products.
The tour stopped at four local businesses — the Dunedin Community Garden, JJ Gandy's Pies in Palm Harbor, Jensen Bros Seafood and 7venth Sun Brewing (with special guest Bee Branch Creek Apiaries).
Dunedin Patch stowed away on the three-hour tour and shares a video spotlight from each local company along the way.
Next stop: JJ Gandy's Pies of Palm Harbor.
