Executive Director Dan Kenney is interviewed by SpartanTV Junior students about how DeKalb County Community Gardens began in 2012. He talks about how important it is to make food available locally for the future and how the gardens are experimenting to improve growing in the cold Illinois climate. There are 56 gardens around the county, including one at every school! Jon Walter led SpartanTV Junior's Sycamore Elementary students to create this story with support from the DeKalb County History Center.
