Albert Einstein once defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. That would seem to be the issue we are faced with here in Hudson. That and unconscious behavior.
The garden seemed like a very rewarding project. Sorry to see it and the programs it came with disappear. I expect we'll see a photo like this ten times magnified if the community garden also disappears. So Einstein's definition will probably be proven yet again.
To answer Samuel's question, see "Garden Drama II" published on February 19 on Gossips. The introduction of a new Youth Commissioner--a Scalera appointee--brought an end to the programs that created the garden, in particular Carole Clark's Kids in the Kitchen program. Now the space needs to be cleared for the addition for a senior center that's being added to the Youth Center. See "Hudson Senior Center" published here on August 31. I've heard that Scalera has assured people that the raised beds are being stored and will be used someplace else. I'm going to the Youth and Aging Committee meeting tonight to see if I can find out.
Thanks. How much did that program cost?
Someone asked me about the cost of the Kids in the Kitchen/Yoga Buddies program a few months ago, and I got the answer from Carole Clark at that time. (The two programs existed in tandem. Kids would do yoga while waiting for things to simmer or bake.) The cost for each six-week segment was $2,400.
