There are lots of new things taking root at Sculpture Space! Including the installation of West Utica’s first Community Garden in Spring 2015!
Through the generous funding and support of the U.S. and NYS Departments of Health, Cornell Cooperative Extension, and a group of dedicated community volunteers – the front yard of Sculpture Space’s Gates Street facilities will be partially transformed into a working community garden in the months to come.
But of course, true to Sculpture Space form….this will not be your average garden! We are applying for additional grant funds to make this Utica’s one-and-only ART GARDEN! If we are successful, we will need one or two interested candidates with green thumbs who would like to be considered for Cornell Cooperative Extension Master Gardener training this spring, and who would be willing to lend a few hours of volunteer guidance to those working the Sculpture Space garden between May and October.
Would you like to learn more? If so, please contact Sculpture Space Board Member Helen Madden firstname.lastname@example.org for more details (please leave your evening phone number), and take a moment to browse over the application and program description. But hurry, as the Master Gardener application deadline is Friday, January 16th!
(Please note: the cost of this training will be covered if grant funds are secured. Thank you for your support!)
