Mey Marple and I are working to get the Mt Kisco Community Garden all set for the 2019 garden year. We have just one problem: there are way too many holes in the bottom of the fence. These holes in the fence are allowing animals who like our fresh veggies into the garden. With your help, we can get the fence repaired before next year's veggies get planted in the spring.
The backstory: This garden is a project of Intergenerate, a Westchester based non profit organization dedicated to addressing food insecurity by building community.
The costs: We will need 550 feet of fencing, which will need to be dug 2 feet into the ground to keep out animals that like to dig. We plan to hire local workers to do the work. Our estimated costs are $700 for the fence materials and $300 to pay for workers.
How you can help: Donations, big or small, can help us fix the fence.
Want to garden with us? We still have some spots open for the 2019 garden season. Our garden operates on a co-op model. We all share in the work and in the harvest. We also share the harvest with local food pantries. Each gardener has one day of the week to help. Generally the work is weeding, watering, or watching. This model is great for busy people and those new to gardening will get lots of support. If you are a more adventurous gardener and would like additional space in the garden to grow even more food, that can be arranged for an additional fee.
