Checking in on Your Gardens

It's summertime and here at The Food Project, that means we are working in full force. I am 16 years old and I started at The Food Project last summer as a crew worker in our Summer Youth Program. Now I am at the intern level, which means I have grown as a worker and I have a better understanding of what it means to work hard and build a better community. In fact, this summer, eight interns joined the Boston internship to work alongside Kesiah and Kathleen on many projects, and one of our main focuses is the Build-a-Garden Program.

So far, we have met new gardeners who we will build raised beds for, starting this week. You might also see us checking up on your gardens if we built it in the past year. We hope to give you helpful advice and feedback. Sometimes we visit a cluster of raised beds in one neighborhood, so we might come by when you aren't home. If you'd like to request an in-person visit from us, just send us an email ([email protected]) or call us (617-442-1322 ext 12) and we will try our best to set up a convenient time.
