The Dig Kids – an Urban Farming Program Retire Gardens in 2012.

 

After a successful year of gardening and learning farming practices, The Dig Kids (an Urban Farming Program) closed their gardens at both the Everett Hodge Center on Franklin Street and the Van Buren Street Park on Van Buren Street, both in Kingston.

Thanks to all for making it great especially Jesica Clark, Megan Weiss and Valerie Linet.

Look forward to 2013.
