About 30 “garden angels” gathered for breakfast to start planning this year’s growing season for the Fort Wayne Urban Farm’s Hunger Relief Project. “Garden angels” are what organizer Ephraim Smiley calls the helpers at the farm’s 17 acres of fresh produce plots at Fellowship Missionary Church in Fort Wayne, Indiana – people who, depending on their skills and interests, do everything from run a tractor or fix a cultivator to plant, weed, harvest and deliver free vegetables to people in need.
