We are looking for your advice in how we might be able to increase community awareness and participation in the garden. So far, our ideas include:
- Establishing a table at the new Edgewood Saturday Farmer's Market
- Going door to door in the Edgewood neighborhood to introduce the garden personally, along with handing out a newsletter or pamphlet of some sort
- Maybe the newsletter/pamphlet would include events going on this summer that are associated with the Edgewood Rec Center; a list of veggies currently being grown and what can can be harvested now; plus a recipe that includes one of the vegetables currently available to harvest
- Utilizing the current community groups in the Edgewood neighborhood, create a virtual network of sorts that connects all of its groups together, so everyone can have one place to get all their information from. And maybe, a firm meeting every month from a leader of each of those groups to brainstorm activities in the coming months.
Thank you for your time, energy, support and suggestions!
We hope you are having a lovely summer!
