April 23rd, FRESH Annual Early Plant Sale!
This year in two locations:  at the FRESH Garden from 10am -2pm
                                    & Fiddleheads Food Coop from 11am – 2pm 

Early spring is a great time to plant the first round of vegetables in your garden!  Asian greens, lettuce, spinach, kale, onions and many other greens will grow in the cooler spring soil.  Most have a quick grow cycle so you can harvest in time to plant your main summer crops.

Come visit us at the FRESH Garden or at Fiddleheads to pick up all your early plant starts!

WE ARE GREATER THAN THE (2)


Help us welcome in the 2016 Growing Season!

Saturday workdays at the FRESH Garden

Our Saturday volunteer workdays connect you with the land to learn and grow. Whether you are an expert, or not, you’ll share and learn about urban growing, interact with new people from our beautiful community, and you will love your work. We provide volunteers with free snacks and drinks. Students and community members can earn service hours while working with us at the
FRESH Garden. 
Come and work with us, and help us to build a better
(more sustainable, more just and more beautiful) food system!

Every Saturday, rain or shine, from 9:00am to 1:00pm at our
community garden at the corner of William and Mercer Streets.
