THE FRONT LAWN FOOD PROGRAM ENCOURAGES LOCAL FAMILIES TO GROW THEIR OWN ORGANIC VEGGIES.
Please note: Thanks to our generous community members, we are sold out for the 2022 season! Please email isamaya to be added to a waiting list.
The Front Lawn Food program, in collaboration with Berkshire Community Action Council, encourages local families to grow their own organic veggies. Garden beds are constructed and installed by Greenagers staff and youth, with summertime advice and periodic garden check-ins available to garden owners. Included in the purchase price of a garden, is the donation of a garden to a local family in need. Each garden is composed of one 4’x8′ raised bed (8 inches tall), built from locally-sourced wood and filled with an organic soil/compost mix. Garden beds are planted with organic seeds and starts of your choice. Each bed converts into a winter greenhouse for year-round growing. The total cost of the two beds (one to be donated), fully installed and planted out, is $600.
Donated Gardens are available to income-eligible families with children at home and senior citizens. Priority is given to families with children. Garden recipients must be full-time residents of Berkshire County and committed to the care and maintenance of the garden.
If you have any questions about purchasing a garden, or to inquire about receiving a donated garden bed, contact Isamaya, or use the link above.
We are very grateful to our 2022 Program Sponsors!
