New Non-Profit Group Promotes Organic Community Gardens

A new non-profit organization, the Community Garden Collective (CGC), has been formed by a group of South Portland gardening enthusiasts. The CGC is committed to creating and supporting opportunities for all residents, regardless of circumstances, to have access to organic gardens within the South Portland community. CGC’s goal is to develop safe, beautiful and well-equipped facilities for gardeners to grow and harvest organic produce and flowers.

CGC has identified its first community garden location, a small portion of the land behind the former Hamlin School on the corner of Sawyer Street and Ocean Ave. The group’s goal is to have the first organic gardening spaces available for planting in spring of 2012.

The proposal for the gardening project will be presented at the South Portland City Council Workshop on Monday, January 24th at at the Community Center.  Please attend and share your comments!
