Garden rooted in faith to feed community

From Maryland-

Not just a tree, but a food forest grows in Brunswick.

The city's only grocery store closed last year, and out went the supply of fresh fruits and vegetables for anyone who did not, or could not, grow their own produce or drive 10 or more miles to get it.

Waiting for someone to solve the shortage was not the solution, the Rev. Anjel Scarborough said.
“We need to take charge of that,” Grace Episcopal Church's priest in charge said.

In the past 48 days, she, her congregation and others in the community have literally planted her inspiration: the Brunswick Food Forest. She got the idea for an urban garden at an Episcopal Buildings for a New Tomorrow conference in April.
