I am pleased to be announcing new gardening and local food options to the Butchertown and surrounding communities!!! The good folks up at the Green Building on Market St have recently acquired raised garden beds that will be for rent to the public. Many Butchertown residents are renters or deal with a lot of shade, which isn't always conducive growing edibles, but your solution is here! Go in with a friend or neighbor and for $25 per year you can have your own garden. The plots are 4x8 feet, and water is available on site- just gather your favorite seedlings and watch your fresh, local food supply flourish. Questions on how you can have your own plot of paradise can be directed to Eric Burnette, his email address is easy- email@example.com.
This is a great way to enjoy fresh foods, meet new people, and become active in the community. Hope to see you there!
