Thanks again for calling. I really appreciate your
insight and offer of support.
We will be working at the Grant Houses garden site
behind building 430 W 125th St. on Saturday at 9:30am, constructing raised
We are also having a workday at the Columbia
Community Garden on Sunday started at 11am (see below). The garden is located in
Pupin Plaza, in the northwest corner of the Columbia campus (inside the corner
of W 120th and Broadway Ave.) adjacent to the tall building under construction.
This will involve more hands-in-the-dirt work which might appeal to your
permaculture group members.
We will not be planting at Grant so will not be
able to utilize cover crops this weekend. I'm not sure if the Columbia garden
could utilize cover crop seeds at this time though. Many seeds have already been
planted at that site, but more are still being planted. Thank you very much for
On another note, if you think that any of your
group members would be interested in joining a fall, 10-week CSA distributed at
Columbia University, please forward the following information to
