Local residents learn to cultivate at community garden

Residents of Needham, Massachusetts, are being taught how to properly cultivate their own produce by instructors, greenhouse enthusiasts might be interested to hear.

Every Tuesday morning and Thursday evening classes take place to teach people about the intricacies of gardening and benefits of veg.

An instructor at the site Jeane Gerber, who told NeedhamPatch that she is "into vegetables big time", is excited about teaching groups of people who have little or no experience in the garden.

"It's supposed to take the fear out of starting a garden at your house. We're going through it all together," Needham Community Farm President Debbie Schmill told the news provider.

Each gardener receives their own individual plot and, ten weeks into the program, many of the participants are taking home an abundance of different vegetables.
