Dear community readers,
I'm sorry that it's been a couple of months since I've written about the garden. There were some ups and downs there where we couldn't say or write anything because the Department of Parks and Rec was determining the status of our Park Partnership Garden Agreement and that of Boston Academy's "Friends of" Agreement. There's a complicated history in Edgewood that I don't think even those involved (including myself) fully understand. This history is rooted in prejudices and bigotry - that can sometimes prevent us from working together on our common cause - the community.
Sometimes, not always. We're back on track. Both organizations (Boston Academy and Friends of Edgewood Recreation Center, Inc.) are back to doing good work for the Edgewood neighborhood.
And with that, let's get back to gardening. The garden looks beautiful. And whenever you're out there, please pick all of the yummy things that are growing out there!
What's growing in the garden? I'm glad you asked!
......and flowers to pick and display in your home!
Thank you for all of your support and interest in the garden. Check out the calendar for our upcoming events.
