CRITTERS ARE GETTING INTO OUR COMMUNITY GARDEN THOUGH OUR 12 YEAR OLD RECYCLED FENCE! -
WE NEED A NEW FENCE BEFORE mAY - AND YOUR DONATION WILL HELP US REACH OUR GOAL!
History of the Garden Fence
In 2007, one of our founding members took down his cousin’s deck at her house, and with others carted it over to our garden location to be used as the wood. We were able to purchase the posts and wire at a discounted rate from Tractor Supply and then got to work. Eight of us spent several days building the fence to keep the critters out. It has protected the produce grown by over 250 local families and the 1,000 lbs of produce that has been donated to the local food pantries over the last 12 years. While we have fixed it several times, it is officially falling apart and no longer able to do it’s job.
