Calvin Garden plots available / volunteers needed for Aug 6 work party

Wednesday, July 27, 2016

Join Diggin’ Shoreline on Saturday, August 6 between 8am and 11am to help restore the Calvin Presbyterian Community Garden!

Restoration is well underway on this wonderful garden is located on a flat, sunny site with plenty of parking available. Diggin’ Shoreline led the effort, and offer their thanks to the 11 church, neighborhood and Diggin’ volunteers who came out to help at the first event. With a little more TLC and a couple more work parties, this garden will soon be in full production. A large volunteer turnout on August 6 will assure that.

Several plots are still available to be rented for $15 for the remainder of the year. If you are seeking a garden plot, we’ll have application forms at the work party. You may choose your plot and begin working on it during the work party.

Wear sturdy shoes, and bring water bottles, sunscreen, garden gloves, digging forks and hand tools. Anticipated projects for the morning include completing weeding remaining plots for rent and food bank plots, spreading compost, planting fall crops, organizing the storage shed and getting compost bins in place.

School-age children are welcome with parental supervision. This is a great community service opportunity for high school students.

The garden is located on the corner of Richmond Beach Road (NE 185th) and 3rd Ave NW. The site is completely ADA accessible, and both the METRO 330 and 331 bus lines stop in front of the garden. Hope to see you there!

I know there is subsidized housing a few blocks away from that garden - I suspect there are many people living there that would love a patch - especially if they could be subsidized. If Calvin wants to start a fund to help low-income people garden I'm happy to help sponsor a patch or two.
