To all of our gardeners, volunteers, and friends,

The 2200 Homestead Rd property we have been using since 2009 has been listed as under consideration for sale. For the next couple of months (and in particular the next two weeks), we will be petitioning the Town Council and the Mayor to refrain from selling the land they have generously allowed us to use up until this point. We are asking individuals in the area to stand with us at the Town Council meeting on September 8th when we make our petition to keep the land. If you would like to join us at the meeting, please wear green to identify yourself as a HOPE Gardens supporter and arrive at Town Hall by 6:45 pm.

Thank you for your support – you all are the HOPE in HOPE Gardens. (We know it’s cheesy, but it’s true).

Much love,

HOPE Gardens Co-Chairs


If you are interested in getting involved with HOPE Gardens, we’ll be holding an interest meeting on September 1st at 8pm in the Anne Queen Lounge of the Campus Y. Come check us out!

Can’t make the interest meeting? No sweat. We’ll have our first work-day this Saturday, September 30th, 10am at the Garden (2200 Homestead Rd.) Rides from the Campus Y at 9:45am.
