Although there are inches of snow covering the earth, spring is certainly approaching. In the greenhouse seeds are tucked into warm, moist soil, getting ready to emerge and grow into this years supply of healthy, organic crops. Onions and Leeks, Kale, Cabbage, Broccoli, Collards, slow growing herbs and flowers are the first. We will be meeting on Saturdays for regular seed starting through the end of April, so please reach out if you would like to join us.
Spring is here, seedlings have sprouted in the greenhouse, and we are starting to prepare and plant in our gardens.
We look forward to welcoming anyone and everyone interested in learning and growing with us. We're very excited to see old and new faces volunteering this year! Spreading compost and planting seeds have already started in all of our gardens. One of our new gardens is located in Passidomo Veterans’ Memorial Park in West Harrison, and we are grateful to Mayor Ron Belmont for his continued support and for helping us set up this garden. This giving garden will serve those in need in Harrison and the surrounding community. We are pleased to announce the opening of our new garden located on Manhattan Avenue in Greenburgh, which will hopefully expand as a larger project with the Town of Greenburgh. These two gardens will help us continue to expand our mission of bringing locally-grown, chemical-free, nutritious produce to all in the community. If you're interested in volunteering at the gardens, feel free to email us at email@example.com, or come check out our new weekly blog to see our volunteer days! If you don’t see any volunteer days that fit your schedule, please reach out and we will work with your schedule.

The 2nd and 3rd Monday April through September from 11am-2pmn each month and an additional day every other week still TBD with one Wednesday evening each month as well.
