A group of gregg’s gardens volunteers spent part of this afternoon walking down Atlantic Street knocking on doors to let the people who live near where the gardens will be planted know that the creation of the gardens will begin very soon. We left a flier in the mailbox anywhere we found no one home.
I’m delighted to report that the news was greeted with great enthusiasm. Not a single neighbor raised an objection, in fact nearly everyone expressed delight with the idea. Several people offered to help in some way — either by contributing their labor or money.
We have 18 firm commitments as of today and we still have a god shot at getting sponsors for all 20 lots on the Atlantic corridor. Stay tuned as we expect to have specific information about the prepping and seeding process very soon.
