Edible Main Street & Solidarity Gardens
Growing fresh food where it's needed
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 will help people who wish to grow their own food at home. Successful applicants will receive a garden bed or a raised planter installed at their home. Included in the package will be fertile soil, a mix of seeds and seedlings, and tips for beginning gardeners. Gardens are provided free of charge, and recipients are welcome to make a donation to fund more gardens for the community. Spoke Folks cargo bike cooperative will be partnering on the project to deliver materials to sites within the Norway/South Paris area. Applications are now available, and will be accepted on a rolling basis - please email email@example.com or call 207-739-2101, and share with people who may be interested. Residents of Norway and South Paris are eligible. No documentation of financial need is required.
If you would like to volunteer to be part of the Solidarity Gardens project, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. Several volunteers are needed to help with preparing materials at Alan Day Community Garden and assembly at recipients’ homes. Volunteers will be asked to provide their own transportation, wear masks, maintain social distancing from anyone they’re not living with, and follow other guidelines as needed.
