It takes vision to look at a bare field and see something that can benefit a community. It takes perseverance to see that vision through to reality. But that’s what two women have been doing in Eldora, and their hard work is poised to pay off this summer.

Nicole Low and Crystal Carroll met at Steamboat Rock Baptist Church, and formed a bond over their interest in gardening. Last year, as they talked about their love of working in the dirt and growing food, they realized they could have a lot more fun and get a lot more accomplished if they were working together. But they didn’t want to benefit only themselves. Low and Carroll had a bigger goal in mind: helping hungry people in their own backyard.
