For our 2018 Q2 Volunteer Day, Beacon partnered with Cultivating Community for a day of supporting community-based urban agriculture. We helped build raised beds and terraces in the gardens, as well as plant a number of new fruit trees and bushes and prepare the garden for spring planting. By the end of the day we were able to build over sixteen new beds! Cultivating Community supports access to healthy, local foods in the Portland area through programs like its youth internships, CSAs, and the New American Sustainable Agriculture Project for refugee and immigrant farmers in Maine.
