BCF Community Garden
The BCF community garden is cultivated by volunteers and is organized through partnership between BCF and Bountiful Brookline. Located at 40 Webster Place, Y(our) garden provides fresh produce to the Brookline Emergency Food Pantry during the growing season. In 2009 the Chestnut Hill Garden club gave BCF a grant that allowed us to triple the garden’s growing capacity.
The BCF community garden began in September 2001, when a group of Brookline 7th graders created the garden with a lot of hard work. In April 2002 BCF received a grant from the Brookline GreenSpace Alliance for tools, compost and seeds. Each year from late June through September the garden produces strawberries, lettuce, radishes, tomatoes, beans, carrots, and cucumbers, all of which are donated to the Food Pantry. Volunteers range from students, parents with their children, and seniors, and do everything from planting seeds and seedlings to delivering the harvest to the pantry.
