In the next two months we will begin building raised beds at our new garden plots around the city. Raised beds are necessary as Cambridge soil is notoriously contaminated with lead; raised beds prevent our crops from being contaminated as well.
In the long-term, we are really concentrating on building the narrative of food sovereignty through urban agriculture. We are doing this through skill share sessions (teach-ins on woodworking, compost and composting, gardening 101, food justice, etc.), social hours, and postcard campaigns to neighbors.
We also need funds to continue running our community fridge at the Cambridge Community Center.
