WHAT IS A COMMUNITY GARDEN?

Very simply, it is:
Any piece of land gardened by a group of people.

It can be urban, suburban, or rural. It can grow flowers, vegetables or community. It can be one community plot, or can be many individual plots. It can be at a school, hospital, or in a neighborhood. It can also be a series of plots dedicated to "urban agriculture".

Cole crop insect alert

ā€¯Bagrada

Bagrada hilaris, a species of shield bug known by the
common names of bagrada bug and painted bug

The following cole (Cruciferous) crops should be planted only in the late fall and early winter; they are a cold-weather plant. As a result, if you plant these crops in the late spring or summer, the bagrada bug will attack them. An infestation of these bugs is usually quick, intense and highly likely to spread to other beds if not treated quickly and properly. Always contact us immediately if you see these bugs (or other bad insects) in your or another member's garden bed. We can help you solarize the infested bed to correct the problem.

  1. Broccoli
  2. Mustard
  3. Brussel Sprouts
  4. Cauliflower
  5. Collards
  6. Kohlrabi
  7. Turnip
  8. Cabbage
  9. Kale
Also, please refer to the mounted poster in our tool shed (against the wall on the right hand side) for guidance about good insects. Also, we encourage you search the Internet to learn about both good and bad insects.
