Our vision of making garden beds available to people who need them has become a reality!
The Melton Center’s community garden includes five households with individual plots and five plots dedicated for youth programming. The garden has been under construction since April, and planting began on Saturday, May 22nd. We are excited to see the fruits, veggies, and flowers the garden will produce as well as the connections the participants build through gardening together.
In a similar spirit of collaboration, at Barclay Friends Senior Living on N. Franklin St., beds are gardened by both Barclay staff and Green Team gardeners.
More updates soon as the season advances!
