Though Grow has no formal ties
with the University, Eskstein points
out that an increasing number of
green-thumbed students are showing
interest in gardening. Nancy
Tillengast, a Michigan graduate who
worked on a "Grow" plot four years
ago, touted the project as a savior for
financially strapped students.
"I suddenly found myself with a vir-
tual cornucopia of food during the
school year," she says. "It was cer-
tainly a great change from the
drudgery of eating cheap peanut but-
ter or expensive frozen foods."
ESKSTEIN seconded this opinion
by saying that "nearly half of our new
people are students. In the summer it
works out well. When one person
leaves for a while, his friends stick
around and care for the garden."
Besides offering land for the garden
itself, Project Grow provides services
such as watering and a limited supply
of seeds and tools.
As a new twist this year has marked
a great influx of group gardening at

Arbor, works with young children in
after-school and summer programs
which teach the youngsters ways to
deal with hunger. It's a real education
for them," she says. "It also has a
real family-oriented sort of flavor.
Once the kids learn and become
interested, they take their vegetables
back home to their families."
And though Project Grow places a
heavy stress on the logistic and
economic gains available through
community gardening, its aims often
reflect a more basic, tangible quality.
Rebecca Arebo has only been with
Project Grow for a year, but the
benefits that she gains from her gar-
den perhaps exceed those gained by
others. "The major overriding factor
to me concerns a medical problem ...
allergies," she says. "I need an
organic sort of diet, one that's free of
additives and pesticides. Project
Grow is as close to a controlled
system as I can find."
INDEED, Grow gardens do offer a
natural environment to avoid what
Tillengast calls "plastic food." She
urges anyone striving for a more
healthy diet to "start a Grow garden.
It, for a change, is 100 percent real."
The members of the project make it
quite clear that each gardner must
take excellent care of their plots. The
gardens must be weeded and fer-
tilized on a regular basis, and those
who do no comply often have their
plots reclaimed by the program so
that others may garden.
Arebo took that point one step
further in pointing out one final factor
on which Project Grow is based: "On
top of everything, it's just a nice
statement of community, without any
