Reminder Annual Garden Gathering March 23

Sarah Hutt
 

Hi all,

Just a reminder that March 23rd is the annual Gardeners Gathering at Northeastern University.  This is a city wide open house for the city’s gardeners to come together.


They are still looking for people to teach workshops, set up an exhibitors gallery. or sell products.  Here are the links to sign up if you want to teach a workshop, have a table in the exhibitors' gallery, or advertise in the brochure.

This year's featured guest speaker is Aziz Dehkan, Executive Director of the New York City Community Garden Coalition. Aziz is an activist, community organizer, former organic farmer, and a tireless member of #Resist. He has worked for many social and environmental organizations including Mother Jones, The Coalition for the Homeless, The Fortune Society, and Peace Action Network of NY. Aziz will address the history, current state, and future of community gardens in NYC, looking at them through the lens of social justice and climate change protection. He’ll speak to gentrification and racial inequality and delve into how community gardens can be in the vanguard of climate change monitoring, adaption, and mitigation.

Hello Sarah et al.,

I am writing to confirm that I am renewing my plot B125 this year and just mailed the check today.

I actually mailed the check on Saturday but it came to me yesterday, as I hadn't noticed that the envelope had a sticker with my name on it and Luke's Box in the return address corner.

Thank you, and if the check does not arrive by Saturday I hope that I can still be counted since I will be out of town that day.

Thanks!

Boston Gardeners' Gazette

A Message from Vidya Tikku, General Manager

VidyaAs our staff and volunteers are eagerly gearing up for the coming spring, I wish us all to embrace and celebrate our role as leaders in the neighborhoods of Boston. Together, we will look to provide nearly twelve thousand people with access to fresh food across our fifty-six gardens and supplement many family food budgets. We will welcome approximately a quarter million people into our gardens, providing refuge and much needed open space, opportunities to connect people with each other and building and strengthening friendships and families. We will bring color and beauty into our neighborhoods. We will volunteer thousands of hours to ensure Boston has a thriving network of community gardens, engaging nearly fifteen thousand people with skill building workshops and family fun events. Thirteen gardens will receive significant and much needed infrastructure upgrades, in addition to our weekly maintenance efforts across each garden. We'll welcome diverse cultures into our gardens and swap tomato secrets, plants, and recipes.

We are successful because we are not a group of individual leaders, but a community of committed individuals who are building and managing innumerable relationships, building consensus one day at a time. Our mission grows stronger, thanks to your leadership.


We're Hiring!

Want to share your gardening and/or program planning and outreach skills? We’re looking for aGarden Coordinator for our Blue Cross Blue Shield workplace gardens as well as a Program Coordinator for our summer programs in the gardens. We’d love for you to apply or spread the word!

What’s New at the Gardeners’ Gathering

– Michelle de Lima, Engagement Manager

MichelleThe Gardener’s Gathering will be as chock full of garden skill-building and networking opportunities as ever, but this year’s conference will also include a focus on the role that individual gardeners and community green spaces can play in making Boston more resilient in the face of climate change. We’re excited to welcome Aziz Dehkan, Executive Director of the New York City Community Garden Coalition, to kick off this year’s opening plenary at 10:45 in Northeastern University’s Egan Center. Aziz is an activist, community organAzizizer, former organic farmer, and a tireless member of #Resist. He has worked for many social and environmental organizations including Mother Jones, The Coalition for the Homeless, The Fortune Society, and Peace Action Network of NY. Aziz’s address will look at community gardens in NYC through the lens of social justice and climate change protection. He describes NYC’s community gardens as “living symbols of unity built by neighbors who joined together to turn abandoned, trash-strewn lots into vibrant community oases” and as “resilient, cost-effective neighborhood-based sources of sustainable food production.”

Exciting new workshops include Co-Exist: Gardening with Wildlife in Mind and Garden based Lesson Planning for Children. Those looking to learn to start a community garden, access funding for open space projects, or just make their own sauerkraut will all be in luck! 

Sign up to volunteer at the Gathering.


Praying Mantids in the Gardens

– Jordan Takvorian, Steward

JordanIn the depths of winter with the leaves all fallen to the ground, one can finally better see the branching structure of trees and shrubs. An astute eye is bound to also find other alluring curiosities tucked away, including egg cases left by a mother praying mantids in the fall. Attached to bark, vines, or other plant material left to overwinter, the cases are hardened, grey, approximately 1-inch spheres. As the stronger light of Spring warms the egg case, a voracious army of up to 200 babies emerge all at once. They are both carnivorous and, if no other food is present, cannibalistic. Immediately they set forth in search of living prey. Although they are useful in killing some of the more detrimental insects in the garden such as aphids, they do not discriminate and will eat beneficial insects as well. Just this week we found 5 egg cases on an arbor at the Joe Ciampa Garden in East Boston and will be keeping an eye for the adults out on the hunt this summer, like the one we photographed in Roxbury’s Northampton Community Garden.

Winter in Our Gardens & Parks

– Jeremy Dick, Stewardship Manager

JeremyIn addition to snow clearing, Jordan and I have focused on routine maintenance of parks, shrub pruning, and tree work. We removed a number of larger weed trees from Monadnock, Minton Stable, and Lenox & Kendall community gardens, and processed the trunk sections into firewood. Two Jeremyovergrown hedges were removed from the Joe Ciampa Community Garden, as well as a duplicitous chain link fence that was harboring weed tree and vines. We also stooled a long row of yellow twig dogwoods at the Berkeley Community Garden, with the goal of rejuvenating them for the spring. The brush generated from tree and shrub pruning projects in the gardens is chipped at City Natives, with the resulting chips used as mulch in various gardens. Leaves like those from Erie Green, pictured here, are stockpiled for fueling the City Natives compost heater this spring.

bees allowed in garden?

David Herman
 

Hi- is it allowed to put a beehive in garden for raising bees? There are many online offerings that make it easy nowadays and they provide the correct non-aggressive, garden beneficial bees.
thanks,
dave 

Re: bees allowed in garden?

John McLachlan
 

Sorry David, we do not allow beehives in the garden.   While a nice idea there are city regulations and much red tape that makes it prohibitive.

Re: bees allowed in garden?

Sarah Hutt
 

The garden has been through this about 4 years ago - we were denied approval because there isn’t a place within the garden that provides the right amount of buffer space between the public paths and the hive - also there was concern from people that are bee allergic and the neighbors who have balconies that open up to the garden -

If you intended to pursue this the Boston Zoning Board which must give approval would require a letter of approval from the land owner, the Trustees.  The Trustees would require support from gardeners, and along with that Zoning would require letters of support from abutting building owners. 

Instead we have tried to concentrate on growing flowers that attract bees.  You probably noticed the influx of bees in mid summer when the Chinese melons and squash start to bloom.  They bring hundreds of them.  

If you  are interested in planting flowers in the common areas to attract bees let me know.
