KIT PICK UP: Between May 1st – May 18th: Pick up at your closest Weston locations (Hopkinton, Chelmsford, or Hingham Garden Center). See cashier at indoor main cash register, tell them that you’re picking up your PROJECT GROW KIT and simply tell them your full name. Your $125 kits will include a compostable grow pot, Coast of Maine organic compost, fertilizers, and vegetable starter (tomato, pepper, or other nightshade), an email from us with a link to the class.
CLASS: Beginning May 18th, the group will meet twice a month (every other Thursday) to discuss progress and receive instruction, tips and guidance on their individual growing experiences.
POTLUCK(TBD): This program will culminate in a possible potluck harvest dinner, where participants will bring dishes made from what they grew to share with the other members depending on where participants live (TBD). There will also be a tastiest dish (at dinner) and most beautiful for those that can’t make the dinner (photo) contest.
In the same vein as “teach a person to fish”, the power from learning to grow your own food not only connects you to what you eat; providing fresh nutrient-dense ingredients, but also empowers someone to then share their bounty with others. This further promotes community and connects us all through the practice of cultivation and growing.
