Many community gardens are places where people just show up to tend to their individual plot. However, Carolyn Sitzes of O’Fallon, Illinois (33,000 people) founded a remarkable community garden. O’Fallon Garden Club is a vibrant organization that has donated over 30,000 lbs. of produce to local food pantries.  With 100 members, the club has an amazing array of committees that we’ve listed here:
