GROW Education in #NBW3


The planting of the public GROW Education community gardens at Carlos Pacheco Elementary School on Mt. Pleasant Street is becoming a rite of spring in New Bedford’s Ward 3, #NBW3. Last year, I wrote this blog post about the planting for the coworking facility, Groundwork!

This year’s planting took place on Thursday, June 7 from 3:00 – 4:30 p.m. As it was last year, it was overseen by Adam Davenport of Terra Cura, Inc., who handles the program for the Marion Institute. Unlike last year, program founder Zoe Hansen-DiBello wasn’t on hand, as she recently completed her doctorate and has entered a new phase of her career in education.

About a dozen volunteers and neighborhood folks came to get their hands dirty on Thursday. Ages ranged from about seven to 70.

The GROW Education community gardens are public, and anyone can take from their bounty. Right now, various kinds of lettuce, sage and spinach are ready to harvest – a legacy of last season’s planting.

Tomatoes, beans, potatoes and cucumbers joined strawberries in the ground on Thursday. They and other produce will be ready for harvest this summer.

In this section of Ward 3, Carlos Pacheco School and its community gardens are a real civic benefit. The area doesn’t enjoy a lot of commercial restaurants and other sorts of third spaces – the spots where neighbors can meet and gather. This is one, and it’s a beautiful spot with beautiful ideas.

Here are some pictures from yesterday’s planting. If you live in #NBW3, take a walk over and take a look – and maybe some lettuce – for yourself soon.
