Just a quick post to say that our first "regular" work day will be tomorrow, Tuesday, June 21, at 6:30 pm. So if you're in Brookline and want to get your hands dirty in the garden, come on down to 99 Kent Street and help us out for a little while. We'll be doing some weeding, planting of marigolds, watering, and picking some snow peas (which are now about 4 feet tall!).
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.
