West Haven Community Garden

By Marilyn WilkesJune 18, 2018 No Comments
What were your biggest successes this season?

So far this season, we have a full garden. All 50 beds are taken and planted. We also were able to raise $1,000 through the SeedMoney Challenge.

What challenges did or does your project face?

One of our water spigots needs to be fixed. We also need gravel to help with water drainage through the garden.

How are you working to overcome them?

A plumber will look at spigot to see what the issue is, and we are pricing gravel and delivery.

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

Regular communication with the members is important to build community. Of course reminders are needed about the importance of weeding, but it also is paramount to offer inspirational support with gardening tips and ideas.
