Save Southbridge Community Garden

$240 of $11,000 goal

Raised by 3 people in 7 months
The story of the Southbridge Community Garden parallels that of many community gardens: community bands together, transforms vacant space, grows food, employs people, encourages composting, and then tragically loses lot to development.

In 2011, volunteers began transforming a vacant lot into an oasis where neighbors, children, plants, trees, birds and bees congregate. Everyone is learning to grow vegetables and flowers, and we have held over 15 community workshops and events including worm composting, community meals, cover cropping, season extension, and many others.

The Neighborhood House, which owns that lot that houses the Southbridge Community Garden is planning to sell the property to a developer.

The South Wilmington Planning Network, who coordinates the project, invested over $20,000 in the property, and just this month, completed spending a $30,000 grant to increase local resident access to fresh and healthy foods through implementation of new farmers markets in the community. 

The group has begun a fundraising campaign to match the offer made by the developer, purchase the property, and save the community garden from development.  Please help us save the Community Garden!!!
