Green Sanctuary and Bright Spot Farms

Summertime – and Green Sanctuary members and friends have been working at the Bright Spot Ventures Urban Farm!  As part of our Environmental Justice commitment to low-income communities, we support the work of Bright Spot Ventures in training post-Foster Care youth in sustainable local agriculture.  Our work has been humble, confronting the weeds and crabgrass trying to encroach the rows of green produce.  Protecting the drip irrigation hoses requires us to use direct action on those pesky weeds!  But, the farm's beauty, the lovely scent of fresh basil, the Bright Spot kids and U of D interns sharing the work and harvesting their produce for local markets, makes it all worthwhile. Bright Spots production and markets continue through end of October, so we will be there helping out.  Join us!  Many thanks to Dee Burdash, Cindy Cohen, Deb Haskell, her cousin, Jane, a UU from Lincoln, MA and Elizabeth Siftar for their work on those weedy Wednesdays!  You can visit Bright Spot produce table at Cool Springs Farmers Market, Thursday, 4 – 8 p.m.  Look for the Bright Spot truck.  The kids will be there selling produce!  If you want to learn more about Bright Spot Urban Farm, click here
