THIS SUNDAY: Chappaqua Community Garden Second Season Kickoff Meeting

come garden with us!
February 10, 2012
by Suzi Novak

Many of us in Chappaqua would like to try vegetable gardening, but have been daunted by too much shade or too many deer.  The solution?  A community garden, made possible by the generosity of the Chappaqua Volunteer Ambulance Corps and the leadership of InterGenerate, a local non-profit established to give more people access to fresh, healthy food.  We are kicking off the 2012 season with a meeting and workshop on starting seeds indoors on Sunday, February 12 from 3:30 to 5:00 pm at the Children’s Program Room in the Chappaqua Library.

The Ambulance Corps permitted InterGenerate to build a fenced-in garden on their property; there are 22 beds that can be rented for $50 per season, which runs from April through October.  To make sure that even people in need can get fresh food, there is a dedicated Giving Garden with four beds tended by Girl Scout troop 2747.

There are a limited number of plots available for the coming garden season; if you are interested in gardening or thinking about renting a plot, join us! All levels of gardening expertise are welcome.  For more information, email Suzi Novak .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

I tried to contact Suzi Novak, but did not get a reply. Do you have any other contact e-mail or phone number? My family is interested in the garden plot renting very much, and I try to get in contact with you from October 2012. I was told by Suzi to e-mail her in February to sign for a plot, which I did, but without any success. Please help.
Best wishes,
