|Co-op Garden Update|
by Jon Megas-Russell
In August we held a meeting about the Co-op gardens with a group of ten or so interested community members and Shareholders.
As the facilitator of this meeting I heard much feedback from the attendees in regards to
While we walked our property I learned about the Edible Brattleboro garden and its beautiful and bountiful offerings. Shareholders and community members are maintaining it with their leader Marilyn being the driving force behind it. A big thank you to Marilyn, Jenny, Katherine and her whole team of volunteers including Dave for his support with mowing! We welcome you to help weed, water and pick the food over the last weeks of warm weather!
I also learned that our permaculture and herbal gardens were well thought out and beautiful.
While it’s a gorgeous area we are asking that you be mindful when driving, parking and walking to respect the flowers, trees, shrubs, grasses and plants that inhabit and help make our Co-op parking lot so beautiful. In addition we are in need of trash pick-up, weeding, watering, and maintenance to this and other areas of the gardens in our parking lot. We are offering Shareholder hours for support and we will gladly train you on the tasks. We hope over the coming months that we will create some task lists for each season, advertise work parties for clean up and continue to plan long-term for how to best maintain and utilize these gardens.
