Volunteer Opportunity!

In addition to the Plant Providence workshop on lead and soil health, there will also be a garden build-out in Olneyville this weekend! The Manton Avenue Community Garden, an active member of our Community Gardens Network, is relocating to a permanent home in nearby Joslin Park. Their new garden was designed by Community Land Trust board president and landscape designer Louis Raymond.

This Saturday, the folks from Manton Ave. will need lots of volunteers of all ages and skill levels to make the move happen! If you want to participate in a great hands-on project that will help neighbors grow food, come out from 9 am to 1 pm to help fill raised beds with soil at the new site (rain date is April 9th). Wear comfortable shoes and work clothes; gloves, tools, and water will be provided. Questions? Call Jessica Vega at Olneyville Housing at 351-8719, ext. 104. Joslin Park is located on Florence Street in Olneyville—click here for a map.

The same garden just a few years later, bursting with flowers and food!
