|Brendan and the Beanstalk at Greenside Out Garden|
Bountiful Brookline's demonstration gardens are doing well, the Greenside Out Garden paths are freshly mulched, and we've had several great harvests in the past couple of weeks. Here below are a couple of shots taken in late June of the beans, squash, and pumpkins looking good over at the Goodwin Garden .

However, we still very much need volunteer help from Friday-Monday for routine garden maintenance. We have a regular volunteer crew, but summertime brings vacations and weekend outings, so anyone interested in helping out please contact JD at [email protected] , Garden Volunteer in the subject line..
Going forward, there will be the occasional workdays for big plantings and projects as well as some garden-focused events and fundraisers.
Garden Wish List:
Our gardens need the following. If you can help, please contact JD at [email protected] please put Garden Materials in the subject line:
-Clean produce packing bags and boxes-save some of those clear plastic bags and clear plastic containers from your food purchases, we can use them (and rubber bands too).
-Tools, specifically we need scissors, hammers, screwdrivers, and pliers. .
-Some paints and paint brushes for making garden signs, labeling beds, and other projects. Most size brushes will do, but waterproof paint is a must.
