Get Involved: A Community Garden in Franklin
There is an effort afoot to start up a community garden in Franklin! This is your chance to get in on the ground floor. The first planning session will be held on Wednesday at 7:00 PM at the Franklin YMCA. No gardening experience is necessary.
Amy, who is leading the charge on this, got in touch with us this weekend after learning through the blog what crazy gardeners we are, and we all went down to Dacey Field to meet each other and to review a possible site for the garden. Amy is awesome, and that's the location she is hoping to get, there in the picture. I'm a little concerned that since it is a low-lying bit of land, that it might be classified as wetland (and thus protested and likely off-limits to development.) It *was* pretty dry-looking down there, and I didn't see much in the way of wetland plants, so I'm crossing my fingers!
Since Chris is the veggie gardener between the two of us, he'll likely be representing the Clay household at Wednesday's meeting, while I take care of Gabe. And tomorrow is the first time I'll be attending the Franklin Garden Club! It's going to be a crazy gardening week, yikes.
