Update on the 100 Quincy Community Garden


    There’s been lots of progress at the empty lot (someday to be a community garden) at 100 Quincy Street, near Franklin Avenue. A group of volunteers outlined preliminary plans for the space that include community plots, chickens, bees, a tool shed, picnic tables, compost and a pond. The group will submit the final plan to Green Thumb as part of the process of gaining access to the lot. We hear the Sanitation Department has already mowed and cleared the lot. The group already met with Community Board Three and gained the support of some local institutions, but they still seek more community input. They started a survey to get a feel for what the community wants in this space. And the next meeting will be held Sunday, Sept. 16 at 11 am in front of the 100 Quincy lot.
