Yep, we actually made the papers this morning. The Brookline TAB came out did gave us a full-page spread on the cover of the Brookline Life section. The story, entitled The Skinniest Farm in Brookline, does a great job of capturing the project and our planting day, and also had some terrific pictures. I'm glad more people will learn about this (and maybe we'll plant some seeds for future projects, too).
The 200 Foot Garden is a community garden/art project, to create a commuter garden in Brookline, Massachusetts (near 99 Kent Street). Our hope is to add some beauty and delight to a very everyday stretch of sidewalk and chain-link fence. It's also our hope to remind people that healthy vegetables can be grown in all sorts of environments, not just farms or big yards or community garden plots. The 200 Foot Garden is also a way to bring together neighbors in a project designed to share good things with the people around us.
The project is headed by Patrick and Tracy Gabridge. In our everyday lives, Patrick is a novelist and playwright, and Tracy is a librarian.
The budget for this comes out of our pockets and from donations from folks like you. If you'd like to donate funds to help us buy seeds, compost, and other supplies for the garden, please click the button below.
