We are pleased to announce that Growing Together Gardens is officially open! Last evening we met with nearly 50 interested gardeners from the Karen, Chin, Burmese, Congolese and Bhutanese newcomer communities and their Point Breeze neighbors and signed them up for garden plots for the Fall 2015 growing season. The excitement was palpable, and though the pictures hardly capture that feeling, they come pretty close. Check out the photos below!
The gardeners will receive their plot assignments and plants this upcoming Sunday, August 9th, from 10am to 1pm. In the meantime, we will be working hard to continue cleaning up the space!
Want to see more? We will have additional photos from the 2015 season posted in our gallery section soon!
Interested in getting involved either as a volunteer or by donating? Please feel free to contact…
