There used to be only two community gardens on the seacoast, now there are more like a dozen. The Seacoast Community Garden Network is a networking site aimed at keeping community gardeners as informed as possible. The new site is set to launch on May 1, 2010. Here’s how the founders describe the site:
The Seacoast Community Garden Network, a new social media and information-rich website, will launch this May. The idea behind the network is to gather all the community gardens under one umbrella to learn from each other, support each other, and help foster new community gardens and school gardens. Networking the knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm present in our community gardens is a powerful force for all to share and build upon. As the community garden umbrella, the Seacoast Community Garden Network will be a clearinghouse for information and resources, a matching service for potential gardeners and landowners or gardens, a support system for community garden issues like fund-raising, and a voice for positive change. The Seacoast Community Garden Network is a celebration of all our gardening efforts and will serve as a catalyst for the community gardening movement here.
On May 1, be ready: www.SeacoastCommunityGardenNetwork.org.
