Fresh food for Framingham, March 29 at Grace Congregational Church
There was something for everyone, as approximately 40 experienced and new gardeners attended an open meeting to share ideas about how we can increase food production in Framingham among home gardeners.
Five working groups were formed from scores of proposals, some of which were:
growing free food on public land
support for novice gardeners
after school and summer gardens for elementary schools
seed library making seeds available to all
gardeners sharing harvest with those unable to garden
handicap accessible gardens in public places
permaculture education within the school system
more rain barrel utilization
community garden with local ethnic produce
Would you like to help with our events and share your own ideas? Attend one of our upcoming meetings. We meet on the third Sunday of every month. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
