Among the goals that the UCTAC has for 2011 is to expand community participation in our activities which include our monthly meetings, information gathering, networking, and enhanced advocacy efforts relating to the benefits that trails bring to Ulster County.

Volunteers and Phillies Bridge Farm donate seedlings to Queens Galley

I’d like to thank garden volunteer Paul Rakov and the generous donation of seedlings from Phillies Bridge Farm in New Paltz/Gardiner for  yesterday’s mission!  Paul took a bucket of compost from Kingston to their farm – and helped to transplant 96 seedlings of Eggplant, Peppers and Tomatoes to deliver to Queens Galley in support of their raised bed gardens this season.

This effort will provide a great deal of food for our community in need all summer/fall long.

Thank you!
