Grass for Gandhi and Garden News

We’ve just set up a fundraiser to get some of the last supplies to complete the Gandhi Garden. If we can raise $1000, we can have this space ready for shows and events this Summer. Please watch the video and consider supporting this project with a small donation. You can read more and donate here »

gwg5-webIn other news, Gardening with Gandhi is set for next Saturday, April 27th. Please come out and enjoy a day of gardening and creating. Whether you want to plant kale or weld metal, somehow we have an event where you can do both. You can read more about it here »

Wanted: Plants and Volunteers

859438_10151508345771967_2083136661_oOur next Gardening with Gandhi is coming up on for Sunday March 24th. We’ll be doing lots of planting, so over the next couple weeks we’re running a plant drive. We need:

Edible Plants
Ornamental Plants

We are especially looking for plants which will thrive in the shade, but we’ll take anything. If you’d like to donate, you can call Graham at (609) 903-0715 or fill out or contact form. You can also bring donations right to 223 East Hanover St., Trenton NJ and drop them off in the garden Donation Center (inside the garden entrance, on the left).

Don’t forget to come join us on the 24th for a day of good earthy fun at the Gandhi Garden. Read more about the event here »

Good Times in the Garden, GWG III Next Sunday

gg3smallLast weekend we had a group of students from Rider U come out and help in the Gandhi Garden. It was a great time.. and we want to do it again next weekend. So we’re having another get-together this coming Sunday, the 24th, and Everyone’s invited. I built a chair out of pallets the other day and I’m down to do more work in that vein. Kasso also has some kid’s artwork he’s looking to paste up outside. Let’s make it happen.. check out the event here »

A Garden for Gandhi

Finally we have a page for the Gandhi Garden. It seems our little reclaimed space next door is becoming a big deal, being recently featured on the front page of the Trenton Downtowner,  on Isles’ Website, and in this mini-documentary (thanks Lucky856 Productions). We need help getting the garden ready for spring. That’s where you come in. Monday January 21st is Martin Luther King’s Birthday Day, and since he was a fan of Gandhi, I think he’d appreciate you coming to our second volunteer event in the garden, Gardening with Gandhi Part II. There will be hard work, hot drinks and of course, art.
