Community Garden is Revived

On Saturday, May 26, 2018, a small but hearty group met to clean up, turn over, and plant the community garden across the street from BFS. We started lettuce, tomato, cucumber, pepper, eggplant, broccoli, squash, and strawberry plants as well as some milkweed to feed the butterflies!

Thank you to Howie Bronson of Maple Bank Farm for donating many of the plants. Thank you to Felipe Birk, Sara Brandon, and Gavin (1st grade); Jessie Grenfell and Fiona (incoming K); Julie Martinelli and Maeson (incoming K) and Mia (pre-K4); Peter Mariano; and Michael and Cara Abraham and Wylden (4th grade) and Darya (1st grade). We are hoping to keep the garden going through the summer with the help of children attending library programs and families taking turns when they are in town. More info to follow. See the before and after pictures below. Great work everyone!
