I have both good and sad news. The sad news is that the 2012 garden season is coming to a close. All are welcome to come help put the garden to bed for the winter. Fall Clean-up begins Saturday October 27 @1:30 pm.We'll have some snacks and apple cider.
We still have green tomatoes, salad greens, kale, and oregano. Here's a sampling of last weekend's haul. Can you say Tomatillo Salsa!? (Does anyone still have cilantro ...).
The good news is that it is time to plan for 2013. If you have
suggestions for next year and/or feedback on 2012, we'd love to hear
from you (all feedback is welcome). For example, some people would like
largercucumbers and tomatoes. Got it! At National food day this evening I tried some sage lemonade and it was delicious! Sage is another one for 2013. Feel free to email me at
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.
