CONWAY COMMUNITY GARDEN?

Interested?  Want to garden, or garden more, but lack space or good soil?  Would you like a pre-prepared organic garden plots?

Steve Thomas is envisioning an array of 4 ft  x 16 ft “growing plots” with a 24 inch wide grass-covered walkways separating adjacent plots to allow easy access to the plots even in muddy weather. Participants would be assigned one or more plots on an annually renewable basis. A water source, a substantial composting area, and possibly a vegetable cleaning/vegetable preparation/tool storage/picnic pavilion would be a part of this proposed facility. Local commercial vegetable growers would be encouraged to help design, establish, and maintain this facility, and would be financially compensated for their time and effort. If there is sufficient interest in a CCG, a proposal would be submitted to the Conway Community Preservation Committee for the funds needed for its establishment.

If you are interested, please contact Steve Thomas by November 7 at 413-369-4158 or [email protected] (with CCG in the subject line), or write him at Dept. CCG, 100 Whately Rd., Conway, MA 01341 and answer the questions: 1) Would you SINCERELY be interested in using a CCG if one were established? 2)  If so, would you be willing to volunteer for one or more of the following “curatorship” positions: Composting & Soil Fertility; Initial Plot Layout and Preparation; Grass Walking Path and Perimeter Cutting and Maintenance; Garden Hydration (water system design, use, & maintenance); Nibbler Protection (deer, rabbits, raccoons).
