Houston’s 5th Ward AAPDEP Community Garden gains support as fall crop is planted – October 30 African festival announced
Published Oct 15, 2010-
On Saturday, October 9, community residents and All African People's Development and Empowerment Project (AAPDEP) members came together at the 5th Ward Community Garden and Food Co-op, in the heart of Fifth Ward at 3703 Brill Street to break dirt and plant seeds in an all-day work project to plant its fall crop.
Below is a pictorial of the work that is sure to bring in a bumper fall crop of collard and mustard greens, turnips, rutabaga, broccoli, cabbage, lettuce, winter squash, cucumber, a host of herbs, and other vegetables that are guaranteed to fill the 30 odd rows to their maximum capacity.
The people came for the whole day, as they worked, ate fruit and learned more about producing our own food.
The twenty or so odd people who came out to work the Garden were also getting the area ready for a community African Festival and a Halloween get-together for the children, scheduled for October 30, which will feature live music for the adults, and special entertainment for the children.
Booth Space is available for the Festival and all are welcome. Please contact Nykeba Griffin (832-788-4332, firstname.lastname@example.org) or Omowale Kefing (281-974-2012).
