You'd be hard pressed to find a PH neighbor who hasn't volunteered at least once to help with the ongoing evolution of our communal green spaces. Time and energy invested in our Community Garden, Orchard, and Pocket Park has given us so much in return- produce, friendships, and the inspiration to use our green spaces in new ways for years to come.
In an effort to keep costs low for all involved, we've come up with a plan that not only saves money but increases safety and community engagement too. This year, we're asking PH neighbors with community garden bed rentals to creatively step up and volunteer with additional maintenance work in our green spaces. The response so far has been good, but with your help it will be great!
Sunday March 26: Garden Kick Off & Seed Swap in the PH Community Garden at Brooklyn Avenue & Minnie Street. You don't have to rent a garden bed to participate in the seed swap, but if you are renting one, the annual seed swap is an excellent starting point. 10am-12pm
Saturday April 15: Garden Bed Repair Day If you have a hammer, saw, paint, a paint brush and you know how to use any or all of these things, we'd love to have you join us on 4/15. Many hands make light work. 10am-12pm
The Pendleton Heights neighborhood Community Garden season opens with an offering of 18 large beds and 5 small beds for rent. Visit the phkc.org shop to secure one for yourself. All who rent a bed or volunteer to help with maintenance will be eligible to get a PH Community Garden t-shirt at half price too!
