More Gardens are growing!!!

There is something growing at 14 Griggs Rd. and 36 Country Rd! Despite the weather, Bountiful Brookline and some wonderful volunteers successfully planted two new gardens in the yards of some very generous Brookline residents. We hope these installations will help educate our community on the amazing possibilities of "yard sharing"!

For more information on yard sharing check out these websites:

The raised bed gardens at the High Street Vet's are happening! On Saturday May 15th a group of families kicked off the planting season with an array of good eats. Tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, cucumbers and more. The brand new community gardeners, young and old alike are excited to be growing their own produce. Serena, the 9 year-old daughter of one of the gardeners wants to eat her broccoli as soon as possible! The garden is the first of this magnitude ever built on Brookline Housing Property. Special thanks to Bountiful Brookline.
