The Village Store Community Garden is a garden within the confines of John J. Byrne Community Center of Uniondale where community members with an avid interest in gardening associate in a socially interactive environment to pursue their gardening pathways.
VILLAGE STORE COMMUNITY GARDEN
The project is a collaborative effort of the John J. Byrne Community Center and its sister organization, the Uniondale Community Council and its Youth Project.
Members of the community are welcomed into the Village Store Community Garden to secure a plot or multiple plots and make a commitment to responsibly prepare, cultivate, plant and maintain them, respecting the rights and privileges of others within that space.
Members are encouraged to help each other as a group, as well as socially interacting in the events that are undertaken.
Members meet together to plan, share useful information and feedback on their experiences, as well as document their challenges and how they were or will overcome them. Become a member now and experience the value of a community growing together.
The club needs the necessary resources to enable its development and growth. Your expertise and supply infrastructure is welcome. Volunteering will go a long way in ensuring the success of our club. Some of the needs that will help are:
Cedarwood for constructing Raised Beds
Gravel for Pathways
Plants & Seeds, ie. tomatoes, peppers, spinach, zucchini, okra, basil, cucumbers, garlic, carrots, lettuce, beans, peas, chives, arugula, marigolds, collards, eggplant, kale, leeks, sage, lettuce, etc.
