A fun idea

The other day Pat proposed an idea for a bit of community gardening in our lovely town of Brookline.  There’s a strip of land, about 2 feet wide by about 200 feet long, bordered by a waist-high chain link fence on the way from our house to a nearby T-stop.  About 70 feet of the length could be a great bit of vertical garden – picture cucumber, squash, peas, tomatoes, green beans, etc. planted all along that fence.  It would look far better than the scrubby bit of ground that is currently there. We are thinking that it could be a free, gleaning garden – let people who walk along the way take what they want.  Maybe we could work with people who live in the assisted living housing next to it, or at least maybe they could donate water to the effort.

It sounds like fun.  Pat’s going to contact the management office of the complex this week to see what’s possible.
