The 200 Foot What? The 200’ Garden is a stretch of garden along the fence at 99 Kent Street. It has been a great season so far with peas and (very) spicy arugula. We have also enjoyed getting to know our neighbors. We get tons of compliments and comments whenever we are out weeding, watering, and simply walking by. We even get people’s phone numbers.
Here are just a few things people have said to us:
“This garden is my favorite part of summer”.
“My child only eats vegetables out of this garden".
After a short visit, two people have said, “Hey, I just met you, this is crazy, but here’s my number. Call me maybe.” Is it odd that two people are called “Maybe”?

|The Health Dept. garden on its way.|
An idea that was a mere seed last year has blossomed into a full-blown garden outside the Brookline Department of Public Health (BDPH) on Pierce Street. This spring, staff at BDPH approached Alan Balsam, Director of Health and Human Services, to propose a garden outside their building. With Alan's enthusiastic support, the staff created space on their property for a vegetable and herb garden.
