Spring is finally here and if you haven’t already heard the news, the BPW Community Garden is moving to the corner of S Jefferson and Arsenal to make way for the Urban Sprout farm at Ohio and Crittenden.  This will not only beautify one of the major entrances to our neighborhood but also provide tons of room for expansion.

We are fortunate to have a grant from Gateway Greening to build 15 new raised beds.  They will provide the wood and soil if we provide the labor.  Our installation day is Saturday, April 26th at 9:00 a.m. and we need as many folks as possible to put the beds together, lay down cardboard and fill them with soil.  I believe we will need wheelbarrows, battery powered saws and drills/screwdrivers…maybe even some people operated hammers.

If you are interested in gardening and/or community development or just want to come out on a Saturday morning, get some exercise and meet your neighbors, please let me know if you can join us!

 Please let me know if you can join us!

 

Thanks!

    “The beauty of the maturation of Cherokee Street over the past couple of months is that it has not shown a familiar trajectory for a St. Louis revitalization. There are no posh nightclubs with "pioneer" status nor any ultra-elite art galleries present.

    Rather, there's an organized community dedicated to improving quality of life and maintaining the uniqueness of St. Louis's most diverse and urban business district.”
