Maxwell Street Garden Move

By Adam DidierMay 23, 2019 No Comments
What were your biggest successes this season?

Using the money from Seed Money as well as other grants and donations, we were able to build new raised beds, buy a shed and get the new garden up and running!

What challenges did or does your project face?

Coordination of city resources has been a struggle. It took a while to get the city to put up a new fence and they still haven't turned the power on in the new space so we have to run an extention cord across from the old garden to power drills and other tools.

How are you working to overcome them?

We are working with a city rep to get power on. We were able to build the raised beds on site once we got enough extention cords together to reach from the old garden site.

What did you or your project learn this season that might be useful to others as well?

Make sure you plan well and budget well. You'll always have less money than would be ideal and unexpected expenses.
