Apsley Park Community Garden News

Hudson – The Apsley Park Community Garden volunteers will be meeting this Saturday, Aug. 11 from 9 a.m. ?to 12 noon for the garden's monthly site cleanup. Volunteers of all abilities are needed for tasks such as raking, mowing, mulching, weeding, etc.

Garden volunteers have also noted they are “extremely grateful” to the Community Preservation Committee for recently recommending $22,000 for the garden. If fall Town Meeting approves the allocation, the funds will be used for garden projects such as constructing a fence around the site and doubling the number of raised beds at the garden by the start of the 2013 season.

The group also thanked the Hudson Board of Health for funding the temporary fence that is currently keeping critters away; to A Cut Above Tree Care for a load of woodchips; to the Hudson Portuguese Club for temporary water access; and to Robinson's Hardware for donating the hose and nozzle for the water connection.

The community at-large is invited to attend a Harvest Potluck Sunday, Sept. 16; more details will be announced soon.

The garden's greatest need continues to be raising money for its liability insurance. In order to operate, the garden, which is run by a private volunteer group on public land, must raise $800 per year to pay the insurance. Donations for the garden may be made online http://apsleyparkcommunitygarden.org/donations or by mail to P.O. Box 358, Hudson, MA 01749.
