Community Food Initiatives is excited to announce that we have been partnering with the Creating Healthy Communities Coalition to work towards completing the new Nelsonville Community Garden. The space has come a long way from the paved parking lot it used to be—the plots have all been amended and have cover crops growing over the winter and the paths are all mulched, but there is still lots of work to be done! Once the weather cooperates, our next steps will be installing a compost system, a tool shed, a kiosk, and the final side of the fence. With the help of the CHC, we will be looking into ways to make this Community Garden more accessible to all, including looking into building different types handicapped-accessible gardening beds. We have begun recruiting gardeners for this new amazing space, and are in the process of planning a ribbon cutting ceremony that we hope to hold in early April. The ribbon cutting ceremony will be a community-wide celebration inviting everyone to come see the progress and potential of the new Nelsonville Community Garden!
