I just wanted to reach out and share some news about the new Bay View Community Garden site. The developers of the Hide House have graciously given us a 3 year no-charge lease for the 1/2 block property on Burrell and Deer street. [Zoom in with Street View to see the lot. – JH] I know that Turkey Day is just a few days away but I wanted to invite everyone to help get the soil ready for spring. There is about 10 bags of chicken poop that I would like to lay down. Please bring any leaves, hay, or cardbord boxes that you have at your disposal. Have a great Turkey Day!!! Please respond to let me know if you think you can make it 🙂
This Saturday, 11-28-09, from 1:00-? on the corner of Burrell & Deer street in Bay View.
The Milwaukee Community Compost Network is directly related to this. Outpost, Stone Creek Coffee, Sven’s Cafe and Transfer Pizzeria are among the many local businesses contribute their food scraps to this cause. All that waste that would have gone to the landfill now goes to help make great nwe soil for the burgeoning urban gardening movement. Thanks to all who help!
