Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we've chosen to shift our focus from Edible Main Street to Solidarity Gardens, a new collaboration with the Alan Day Community Garden.
Solidarity Gardens was launched during spring 2020 to help people who wished to grow their own food at home. Twelve gardens were built at households and nonprofits in Norway, South Paris, and Oxford. Spoke Folks cargo bike cooperative transported materials, and each participant got a raised bed or planter box installed, filled with fertile soil, and planted with seeds and seedlings. We provided gardening information, and plan to follow up with interested participants to support their gardening journey.
