Franklin Group Plans For New Community Garden

Would you like to be a part of a new Community Garden in Franklin? Would you like to grow fresh and healthy food? We are group of new and seasoned gardeners who would like to start a large community garden in Franklin with separate plots available for individuals, families and community groups as well as a “Giving Garden” for the Franklin Food Pantry. This vision is a continuation of the Healthy Futures Harvest Garden Project, started earlier this spring as free-standing raised garden beds placed throughout our community. Please join us for a planning session Wednesday evening September 8th at 7:00 p.m. at the Franklin YMCA Bernon Family Branch, 45 Forge Hill Rd. Now is the time to plan for next spring! No experience is necessary. Come help us grow our garden dream into homegrown food on your plate! For more info, contact Lauren at 774-235-2737, email Amy at franklincommunitygardens @ gmail dot com

Welcome to the blog. Let's make some garden plans!

This is a place to dream big and do big.

How about it, Franklin?  Can we do this?

Sure we can. 

Let's make a real Community Garden:

A place for you to plant a garden in the sunshine,

grow things,

eat those things that you grow,

give away what you have extra of.
Share and learn.

Meet your neighbors. 

Eat healthier. 

A meeting is being planned in September at the Franklin YMCA, watch this blog and area newspapers for details!
