The Garden Project Member Application
The Garden Project is a place where we come together in reverent cultivation of growth. We hold food justice as central to resilience, and seek to promote resourced communities through sharing of food and skills. As bodies in collaborative motion, we practice deep listening - to the land, to the plants, to the ancestral knowing we touch the earth with, to our embodied awareness, and to one another in remembered cycles of connection, creation, and harvest. We strive to nurture sovereign and reciprocal systems of nourishment in right relationship to the Land and to the Land’s rightful inhabitants, the Abenaki People. From the individual to the collective, the Garden is a place where we ground to plant and tend the seeds of our resilience.
We offer food, connection and skill building to people interested in growing resilience and supporting food justice through a community garden project centered in practicing relationship to all life.
The Garden Project sees the growing of food/tending of plants as the intersection of food justice, community resilience, personal education, somatic practice, and connection to others, ancestors, and non-human alive.
Formalized in 2019, the Garden Project, currently run by two core members and supported by 3-5 committed volunteer members, has provided hands in the ground experiential education, community celebrations of cycles of season, and nutritious food and plant medicine to an evolving community of 50 plus individuals through our community work days. We tend a ½ acre parcel of land, growing a diversity of annual and perennial vegetables, fruits and medicinal herbs. We see ourselves as expanding the traditional community garden model to create a hybrid model of scopes of engagement, collaborative leadership, community education and food resource for our members and for the greater public. We offer various tiers of involvement to meet differing accessibility needs and host free monthly public community access work days for folks to learn skills, grow community and receive food.
We are currently seeking more committed members in each of our volunteer scopes.

In holding the intention that this work is part of our personal and collective ancestral reconnection work (whatever our lineage may be), as well as unspelling white body supremacy within each of us , we'd love to know your roots? What is your ancestral lineage? Where are your people from? Do you know any foods your people loved to grow?
No worries if you don't know yet. The first step is getting curious.
Thank you. If you checked off the outer scope membership, Yay! Welcome! We will be in touch as the season begins to gear up and we start to solidify our monthly community gathering days. If you are interested in the inner and core scopes, please keep reading.....
