Pledge to the Community:
By receiving a raised bed garden from The Food Project’s Build-a-Garden Program, I am accepting the responsibility to take care of it. I will be rewarded with fresh food of my choosing and the benefits of gardeningfor years to come. I will share what I cannot use myself and share the ideaof gardening with my family and community.Congratulations on your new garden! We know you are eager to getstarted so we have tried to provide some helpful information about planning,planting, watering, pest control and fertilizing. A thorough reading of thisguide should be very useful.This garden has been brought to you by The Food Project, a non-profitorganization that brings together diverse groups of youth to produce healthyfood for residents of the city and suburbs and to provide youth leadershipopportunities. Most importantly, The Food Project strives to inspire andsupport others to create change in their own communities.The Food Project’s Urban Education and Outreach program supportsneighborhood gardeners by building safe gardens for residents andorganizations of Boston. Focused on Boston, its goals are to increase foodproduction, to allow more people access to local, healthy food and to providesafe and successful gardens for all.If you have any suggestions about how to make this guide better, wewould be very happy to hear them. We want this to be as useful to you andfuture gardeners as possible.
