The Mayday Gardens project provides ready-to-plant collections of vegetable starts (‘Your Future Food’), along with fun instructional videos containing simple advice for preparing your planting space, proper transplanting, plant care, harvesting, and seed saving, as well as cooking and preserving tips.
Everyone is invited to participate and how and where you plant Your Future Food is only limited by your imagination. Mayday Gardens can be in your front yard, along the driveway, in a community garden plot: anywhere with soil, sunlight, and a way to get water.
Families and people who have never grown their own food or had a garden are especially invited to participate! As beginning food growers, you will be supported throughout this new and exciting process of planting, tending, and eating your own food! Seasoned gardeners, regular Farmers’ Market customers, and current CSA members are encouraged to continue growing and buying from local farmers. You are also invited to grow a Mayday Garden. An easy way to donate and share the vegetables you grow will be created, meaning more locally-grown food will be distributed and eaten within our community!
Join us in enhancing our local resiliency as we learn to Grow More Food Together!
