The Dig Kids Host Garden Walk and BBQ in Midtown Kingston

Picking fresh corn from the South Pine Street City Farm for the grill. Can't beat that.

By Rebecca Martin

The Dig Kids – an Urban Farming Program created by the Kingston Land Trust with a grant from the Columbia Foundation and a donation from Family of Woodstock celebrated its successful garden season with a garden walk through Midtown and BBQ at the South Pine Street City Farm this afternoon.  75 people attended the event and enjoyed local hamburgers and hotdogs from Kingston’s own Fleishers Grass Fed and Organic Meats (at least a dozen people made a point to tell me that they had never tasted such good burgers and dogs). The Church Community cooked for us all – and after, the Mid Hudson Youth Chorale performed for our guests at the farm.

The Kingston Land Trust wishes to expand ‘The Dig Kids’ program in 2012 – and we are searching for donors and sponsors. If you are interested, please contact me at: Rebecca Martin  845/877-LAND (5263) or 845/750-7295.
