For the past six weeks, our Dudley Greenhouse was a sea of winter greens. While the construction schedule was delayed and our greens were only seeded the first week of January, we were pleased that the harvest began a month later, and produced an abundance of delicate salad greens and crunchy spinach.

Greenhouse Community Garden Flyer - Post this on a local bulletin board...
Greenhouse Community Garden Application - Fill it out and send it back!

The Food Project is pleased to be able to open up our Greenhouse this spring and summer to local residents to grow food for their families in a temporary indoor community garden! As we firm up our plans for our long-term use of the community bays of the greenhouse, we are happy to be able to offer up the space to neighborhood residents for food production this year. For $25, you can have your own 4'x8' raised bed in which to grow short and medium-height plants such as salad greens, collards, broccoli, and summer squash as well as access to a communal bed that  will produce an abundance of tall heat-loving crops such as tomatoes, cucumbers, okra and more!
