Coming Together – A Step Closer
We will secure the garden with a fence and solar powered cameras in order for volunteers and community members to feel safe in the garden space. We will provide opportunities for the community to gather and learn and have fun. We will offer classes about gardening inlcuding maintenance of equipment, canning, planting, and other entrepreneurial skills.
We will secure the area with bought materials and a workday. We will invite the community to the Fall Harvest Celebration and have our first movie night.
why we’re doing it
To generate better participation of the College Park Community/Binghamptom in gardening and neighborhood unity. To bring fresh fruit and vegetables into what is termed food dessert. Also to promote healthy food choices into the area which is dominated by more single parent and elderly head of household family units. We wish to impart knowledge and exposuer to how to grow, care for and prepare these foods into tasty meals.
