We've Got Gardens, Right Here in River City
Since half its garden was sold to Habitat for Humanity to become the site of two more passive houses, Hudson Urban Garden has been seeking alternative sites for the gardeners who grew vegetables at Columbia and Second streets. A happy outcome of their search is a collaboration with Kite's Nest, Sweet Freedom Farm, Staley B. Keith Social Justice Center, and Greater Hudson Promise Neighborhood to develop a new urban garden outside the lone surviving Hudson River Knitting Mills building on North Front Street. On Sunday afternoon, the new collaborative effort held its first work party and potluck cookout to launch the new garden, which has been dubbed River City Community Garden.
