Greenwich Community Gardens To Build Second Garden
Greenwich Community Gardens (GCG) recently received approval from the Town of Greenwich to build a second garden with 88 raised beds in the Cos Cob section of town. This public/private partnership with the town will allow more local residents to grow their own produce and flowers. GCG will also be able to provide additional fresh food for those who truly need it through the nonprofit’s giving program.
The first GCG initiative, the Armstrong Court Community Organic Garden, was built six years ago and now has over 125 raised beds along with a pergola and picnic tables, native butterfly and herb gardens and two garden sheds. GCG has delivered large quantities of fresh produce to the Greenwich Neighbor to Neighbor food pantry over the past few years, providing nutritious food to over 1,000 people weekly. Creating more gardens in Greenwich will expand the capacity of the organization to address health and hunger issues, not only at the level of individual families who garden with us, but also through increased donations to the food pantry.
