Enright Community Garden 2.0: Reboot for 2017 Growing Season


Enright Park Community Garden & Park Clean-up 
and Planning Session

Join neighbors, community members, and garden enthusiasts for a fall clean-up and planning session on Sunday, November 6 from 10 am to 2 pm. Bring your own lunch, but drinks and dessert will be provided!

Our park and our garden are undergoing major transformation! As you may know, the owner of Penn Plaza (the affordable housing near the park) has announced and initiated plans to demolish the housing and build a new Whole Foods, with market-rate housing and office space above. In addition to the loss of over 200 units of affordable housing, which has displaced many long-term East Liberty residents and community members, the project includes reconfiguration of the public park and major impacts on the adjacent residential neighborhood.

At the same time, Whole Foods, which has been a partner and major supporter of the garden for the past 8 years, is refocusing their efforts and will no longer provide garden management and support.

It's time for us to reinvent ourselves as a communal garden for East Liberty, and to define the future of our public park! 
 
(Fortunately, East Liberty Development Inc. owns the garden site and supports the community's efforts to shape its future.)

So please join us to put the garden to sleep for the winter, plan for its future, and participate in the conversation about what is happening at Enright Park and in East Liberty as a whole!

Sunday, November 6 from 10 am - 2 pm
Rain Date: Sunday, November 13, 10 am - 2 pm

  1. As we are looking that now a days that fruits,vegetables and flowers of all seasons are available in the market for all the time they contain the harmful chemicals which are used to grow them in not suitable season on the place of buying these things we should grow seasonal fruits and vegetables at our Gardening Eastwood to eat healthy and leave healthy.
