Over the past few years, volunteers have helped us start a garden on the west-facing balconies of the Mayor’s Office on the 7th floor of City Hall. We donate the produce to the Cherry Street Food Bank and encourage others to consider doing the same. The balconies get bright sun all afternoon and evening, and they get a lot of wind as well.
It doesn’t take a lot of space for a garden, and the food banks are really grateful for fresh produce.
Thanks Allison and all the staff at City Hall who tend the balcony Giving Garden! If you'd like to start a Giving Garden at your workplace, check out the resources on our website or contact us.
