Today was my first day volunteering at a new community garden. There are volunteers that have been there for months and work clearing the ground is progressing. As part of my initiation, I was given a tour around the plot of land and there is space allocated for a pond, a picnic area, a wildlife zone etc., etc. The part I was clearing is earmarked for being a vegetable plot. I jokingly said they should have a section that is "diabetes-friendly" and the leader of the project thought it was a brilliant idea and now part of the veg plot is to be designated as the diabetes area! It is a community garden and after it opens to the public, schools will visit to tend the veg plot as well as the rest of the garden. So, here's a question for the green-fingered out there! What veg should go in the plot, taking into account that it needs to be diabetes-friendly and can be easily looked after by school children? Thanks!
