Despite the snow, we have been very productive at the CRG.
As of Friday morning, the seeds have been ordered!
Judging from our first ever seed order, the diversity of the growers is only the beginning of the diversity of this garden. There will be eggplant, tomatoes, sweet corn, green beans, peas, zucchini, bok choy, sunflowers, pumpkins, cabbage, onions, okra, gourds, watermelon, herbs, and hopefully chin buang (a Burmese favorite)!
From the very beginning, this project was intended to be shaped by the refugees, their needs, and their desires. It has been so exciting to see this project become less and less “ours” and more and more “theirs.” Whether it is S Barry collecting all the wish lists for the garden, or men joining the growing group, or even the vegetables being grown, the CRG will be shaped into exactly what the refugees both need and want for their community.
Thanks for reading our blog and keeping up with the CRG!
Special thanks to Wilson’s Gift Shop and Garden Center for being so helpful and accommodating with the seed orders. This important step could have never been possible without you!
