As part of a community garden (Brewery Creek Community Garden) my partner and I have been dealing with the problem of having excess harvest over the past few years. Other gardeners have also brought this up to the garden board. This year they were able to apply for a grant from Nehibourhood Small Grants and asked if I could design and build a Food Share Stand to assist with the excess harvest. I said “Absolutely!” and got to work.
Designing for public space during the COVID 19 situation definitely increased the challenge of the project as well as having our vehicle totalled while parked out front.All in all i think the temporary food share ‘shelf’ was a fantastic project and has been used by a majority of the gardeners / park visitors.
Thank you for the opportunity!
