Holyoke Street Neighborhood Garden

(updated March 7, 2021)

            Yes, the season is fast approaching. The Garden group had their first meeting and are excited about a successful growing season. This can only happen with your help. Four active gardeners from last year have moved or are unable to participate as fully this year. So here is the plan for this year.

                        –crops: bush green beans, roma tomatoes, beets, carrots, and delicata                                              squash. 

                        –beds need nutrients and more soil

                        –consistent watering, weeding, and harvesting important

                        –recipients of the produce need to be identified.

            YOU CAN HELP by:

                        1. donating $ for soil, fertilizer, nutrients, seed and plant purchases

                        2. donate seedlings: squash, roma tomatoes

                        3. help plant

                        4. help water

                        5. help weed

                        6. help harvest

                        7. RECRUIT PEOPLE TO HELP AND TO EAT!! Remember this is for the community. If you know someone who likes to garden or who wants/needs fresh produce please let us know.

Another very important need is consistent maintenance of the grounds around the church. Ellen Fisher has worked so very hard, mostly alone, and really needs help. We thought it would be good to have monthly work parties to weed and tend to other outside needs. Many hands make light work and by doing this regularly the work is easier. It is easy to keep distance outside too!

            Please contact Mary Ann 570-3113 or maryann_perry@hotmail.com if you are interested in any of the above offers.

            Our next meeting will be Sunday, April 11 @ 6pm via zoom. Contact Mary Ann if you would like to attend.
