SFG is front page news in NJ

Post  trukrebew on 6/9/2010, 11:26 pm

I almost got whiplash when I saw this issue at my library. What a great cover page! Sorry so grainy, but this is from my web cam.

The article is about how the Neshanic Garden Club (here in NJ) helped create a TT SFG for the residents of the NJ Association of Deaf-Blind community home. The home's coordinators felt that gardening "would open up a whole new world" to the residents.

Here's an excerpt:

The Neshanic Garden Club planned the square foot garden using the methods taught by Terry Holman, President of the Garden Club of Long Valley,(Wonder if she's on this forum?) and instructor for Mel Bartholomew's "square foot garden system.".....Hank Raymond..., a garden club member,... [built] a 4-by-4 raised bed, making it wheelchair accessible. He built it out of cedar and installed a removable grid that he screwed on top so that each of the 16 square foot sections were delineated, thereby making it a "true" square foot garden.

To read the entire article, download the paper as a PDF at http://www.gardenernews.com/Pages/newsonline.htm. Just click on JUNE.

Awww...you beat me to it. My wife brought the "Gardener News" home this weekend and I was going to scan in the article and post. It is a great story and I agree that SGF will be great for them.

Yes. I'm sure that 4x4 is going to get lots of love and attention this summer.
