Join us on Saturday, May 2, 11am-2pm at 44 Woolson Street as we work with garden neighbors and friends to clean up the community garden and get it ready for planting, and help clean up the neighborhood, too. It’s part of Boston Shines — an annual, city-wide clean up event. What a great way to welcome Spring as well as the new garden! We’ll start at the garden and then work our way up and down the street.
This will be the first full season for this new community garden, all the more promising given the piles of snow that were here not long ago….
The Mattapan Food and Fitness Coalition and the Woolson Street community gardeners will be on hand for those who want to learn more about this new community garden as well as other efforts in the area.
Last year, the garden grew from this:

IMAGINE what this season might bring.
