The container gardening project, Bloom Where You Are Planted, is blossoming again! As an effort to encourage community gardening and gain access to fresh food, Garden of Etna and ECO are continuing the free program for all Triboro Ecodistrict residents. To register for a free container garden, please fill out this form.
A special shout out to Alice Gabriel, Veni Mittal, and Tom Quigley for organizing this effort. Many thanks to the Sharpsburg Neighborhood Organization for launching the project last year.
In addition, you can get more involved with the Garden of Etna through Welcome Wednesdays starting May 5 from 5-7 p.m. and continuing every week throughout the growing season. Gardeners and visitors are welcome to help with weeding, general maintenance and watering, get some gardening and troubleshooting tips, or can just stop by to visit and snack on raspberries. The garden also harvests for the Bread of Life Food Pantry every Monday morning at 9 a.m. during the growing season. Rain date is Tuesday 9 a.m. Email email@example.com with questions.
