Hello gardeners and aspiring gardeners (and aspiring gardens?)
Finally following up on this thread. The waitlist at the Lamartine/Hubbard Streets Community garden is longer than ever this year (30 people on the list; 17 plots total; 0 turning over this season so far) but we now have a Stewardship/Volunteer Coordinator to put all the aspiring gardeners to work at caring for our garden's common areas. If you're interested in getting involved in this way, please contact Isabelle at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you're a diehard optimist and would like to get on our waitlist, let me know.
Happy gardening to all!
If any of you are eager to get some hands-on experience in pond-building this weekend, please come by to check out this exciting workshop this weekend:
Please come and join us for a fun weekend long community building workshop at JP Cohousing in Jamaica Plain. We will be building a small pond and waterfall in our courtyard. If you've ever wanted hands on experience building a beautiful landscape enhancing water feature then this is the workshop for you. We will have two outstanding professionals in their field (Rich Gargiulo and Charley MacMartin) demonstrate how easy it is to install an attractive pond using locally sourced materials. Together they will guide you through the process step by step in a workshop that will inspire you and give you the confidence you need to tackle the landscaping projects of your dreams. This is a hands on workshop so come prepared to get dirty. Dinner will be provided, but bring a bag lunch.
Feel free to stop by!
I have a large, sunny back yard and side yard that are dying to be farmed. I'm willing to invest time, sweat, and money if someone else has some gardening expertise.
My ultimate goal would be to have fruit, vegetables, a chicken coop, and one of those tilapia tanks in the basement....
I live in Moss Hill, near the Faulkner. It's a 15 minute walk from Centre Street or a quick ride on the 38 bus.
