Bedding the Beds and other Growing Tales

As the leaves and temperatures fall its nice to have a bit of time to reflect upon all the local flavors, friendships and fine times that grew from our first season @ Greenside Out Garden. But before everyone gets too cozy grab your shovel and gloves and bring your energy to the tomorrow, Saturday 11/6 from 1-4 pm for our final work day of 2010.
The crew on 10.10.10 did an amazing job cleaning the back area in preparation for our work tomorrow. In addition to cleaning out the raised beds, a big goal tomorrow is to relocate raised beds to consolidate the production garden.
We are already planning to increase production and develop more opportunities for vertical growing and other urban agriculture innovations to  transform our corner of Brookline into a happy, hearty and healthy center of growing.

And to keep us all energized, planning for the 2011 Spring into Gardening is about to get underway.
Mark you calendar for March 27, 2011 for what hopes to be another inspiring day of workshops, speakers and resources @ Pierce School. But before we can savor that experience we are seeking a great team to help plan and orchestrate the event. So if ideas of local fruits and veggies, community gardens, roof top gardens, inspiring workshops get you excited or if you simply like to meet new people - join in to make this day another fun and inspiring community event!
