Would you like something fun [and garden-related] to do to carry you through the monochromatic and dormant days of winter? Why not expand your plant knowledge and continue to learn even while the leaves are off of the trees by taking a class, attending a seminar or joining a garden group?

Build-a-Garden is a program designed to get more people to grow their own food in Boston and Lynn. The Food Project will build a raised bed garden and provide the support needed to grow food successfully. Raised beds have many benefits: they can be built on pavement or on top of contaminated soil; it is easy to learn how to grow food in them; and they can be planted intensively to produce lots of food in a small space.
Because of the wide range of tree species that may be affected by ALB, its potential presence here is a significant concern. Federal, state and local officials have made plans to further investigate the source and extent of the infestation, and have scheduled meetings to inform local residents and businesses about the effort.
Come enjoy two of Christie’s gardens on the tour this week-end.
