Man Creates Gardens For Unwanted Bees, Grows Free Food in… Unbelievable story…

In spite of the fact that the Ninth Ward of New Orleans has never completely recovered from the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina, this guy has established a flourishing oasis in the very center of the community that provides free food and promotes sustainable living.

Capstone Community Gardens is an organization that is entirely handled by volunteers and was established by David Young with the intention of helping low-income city people as well as honeybees that are in need of a secure and eco-friendly home.

After Hurricane Katrina devastated a significant portion of the district’s infrastructure, he launched the gardening effort.

The gardens, which were established in more than thirty vacant lots, cultivate a wide variety of produce, including swiss chard, brussel sprouts, mustard greens, kale, cucumbers, and tomatoes.

All of this produce is made available to the community at no cost.

Amy Kraus, a volunteer with Capstone who is 39 years old, stated to the Excellent News Network that there are no good grocery stores in the surrounding area.

“The Lower Ninth Ward is the neighborhood that was ravaged the most – the worst of what might have happened.”

Even though there is a food pantry in the area that is open to the public once per month, it does not typically provide enough food to satisfy the need of all of the district’s less fortunate citizens.

“That is not enough to live off of if you have a low income, if you don’t have any money, if you have no method to support yourself.

According to Kraus, “They offer a tiny bit of food to last for the full month.”

The fact that David has taken the initiative to ensure that these gardens are dispersed across the community and that individuals are free to go and pick them whenever they have a need for food is, in my opinion, a good thing.

In addition to providing an essential source of food for the city of New Orleans, the gardens are also a haven for honeybees that have been saved.

Because so many of the buildings in this area are in a state of disrepair, bees frequently find their way into residents’ houses, leaving them in need of a remedy.

They now have the option of calling David rather than contacting an exterminator in order to get rid of the helpful insects.

The urban farmer gathers all of the bees and their hives into a low-suction vacuum so that he may carry them to the gardens where he will keep his crops.

They will be able to dwell freely there among the wildflowers and clover, and they will be able to repay their savior by pollinating the flowers and vegetables he has grown.

In addition, the town of Capstone is home to a herd of goats, which make their living by “mowing” the weeds in local property that have been neglected or are in a state of disrepair.

The goats receive sustenance from this, and the neighborhood is kept clean without the need of lawn mowers, which reduces the amount of fossil fuels consumed.

A flock of contented hens lives in the same hutch as the goats.

The chickens lay eggs on a regular basis, which are an essential source of protein for low-income families. The goats eat the eggs.

“We’ll take the eggs that we collect from the chickens and we’ll take them to people – who, you know, either can’t get out of their house to get food for themselves, or they don’t have enough money,” added Kraus.

“We’ll take the eggs that we collect from the chickens and we’ll take them to people who, you know, either can’t get out of their house to get food for themselves.

The people who were in need of assistance received food packs with eggs, cabbage, spinach, and other greens just the day before.

Kraus chuckles as he explains why he refers to David as the “Santa Claus of Food.” “I call David the Santa Claus of Food because he genuinely looks like Santa Claus,” Kraus says.

But David, in contrast to Santa Claus, is not only generous on one day of the year; rather, he is willing to assist the community at any time of the year.

“Could you even begin to fathom how much more tranquil – how much more wonderful – life would be if we all did our part, if we all did what we could for our community, to help one another, and to aid the environment as much as we possibly could?”
