See What’s Growing in Easton This Saturday
One of the many inspiring, exciting things about our lunch/discussion last week was hearing from Sophia Feller of the West Ward Neighborhood Partnership in Easton*, about the boom in community gardens/urban farming in the city.
You’ll have a chance to see some of this work for yourself Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. when the WWNP hosts its community garden fair at Paxinosa Elementary in Easton.
The fair will include a plant exchange — you bring one, you take one — along with a plant giveaway (donations please).
There’s a chance to weave on the community loom, as well as the opportunity to meet Boomer, an Easton canine celebrity.
You can find the garden along North 12th Street in Easton, near 12th and Northmapton streets.
The event coincides with Bike Smart Easton’s Paxinosa Bike Day, which runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the elementary. Bike Smart Easton is designed to encourage kids to be active bike riders. It connects kids with professional bike instructors who teach them to treat bicycle riding with respect.
*We should note that the WWNP is, like RenewLV, a program of the Community Action Committee of the Lehigh Valley.
