Update From The New Community Garden In Hampden

Update From The New Community Garden In Hampden

From the “Ash Street Garden” in Hampden:

Cleaning was the name of the game this week! With spring just around the corner, we’re clearing the last of the trash and debris from the properties and are negotiating a dumpster to be dropped off on Saturday the 6th. The dumpster will only be available until Monday morning so let’s fill it up fast! In addition, our seeds have been ordered and we’re preparing to start planting seedlings in the greenhouse as soon as possible.

In an effort to make our presence known, we’ve started the first phase of the “Ash Street Garden” mural. The text is finished and now we’re in need of more artists to help plan and execute the rest of the project. Any artists interested in helping out with the mural should contact Allison.
