Working in the garden
FRESH Junior staff members Fatima Robinson, Makeeda Bandele, Renasha Brown and Chloe Murphy, food justice educator, work on tying up green beans at a community garden in New London on Tuesday, July 7, 2020.
The nine beds, located on Broad Street in front of the Ledge Light Health District office, are part of the Snack Bed Working Group of FRESH New London´s five-year Urban Agriculture Plan. Home to tomatoes, beans, collard greens and other vegetables, the garden is maintained by FRESH and community members are invited to pick produce.
