Maple Street Community Garden needs your leaves!
The garden has a thriving 3-bin compost project that many people in the neighborhood contribute to. We have to balance the wet, green material (your veggie scraps) with dry, brown material. As you rake leaves over the next month, please consider dropping them off at the community garden.
The garden remains unlocked at all times. Open the gate and carry your leaves to the back left (i.e. Northwest) corner of the garden. You can drop your trash bags of leaves next to the compost bins.
If you want to get involved with our composting project, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We’re having a potluck this Saturday September 24th from 2pm to 6pm.
Come enjoy the last warm days in the garden! Bring something to toss on the grill, something to drink, or a side dish to share.
Please go here to sign up and tell us what you’re planning to bring:
We’ll have a grill and start around 2pm. Please come! Even if you are not a garden member, this is a great way to meet people and get involved.
If you do plan to come, please let us know what you’re bringing. Email email@example.com
See you Saturday!

St. Gabriel’s GS Troop #2115 visits the garden and does amazing work! Thank you so much!
And, the giant log in the back corner of the garden is FINALLY removed:
Maple Street Community Garden’s compost bins need to be rebuilt. We have received a grant from the Citizens Committee of New York to cover part of the funding but need to ask for donations from the community that uses the bins for help raising the other part of the cost. A professional carpenter is going to build the bins out of cedar (naturally rot resistant material) so they will be well crafted and we expect them to last about 6 years. If you use the compost bins on a regular basis please take the time to donate whatever amount you are able to give.
