The greenhouse is built and the beds are planted! I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to all the wonderful people that made this possible.

The custodial staff at Intervale Green were a huge help, their expertise was definitely appreciated.

The young and energetic tenants of IG also helped out filling the raised beds with soil and compost, and helped plant the first greenhouse crop of vegetables.

The greenhouse will help educate the next generation of urban farmers. The young people of Intervale Green will not only experience first-hand the benefits of fresh, organic produce but they will also have a personal stake in the process.

Meanwhile, up on the roof, the fall crops are doing well. The beets and beans will be ready in a few weeks and our squash has started flowering and growing.

Thanks again to all of you who helped us realize this goal. Please stay tuned for more updates.
