It has been over 40 years now that I have had the good fortune to live in Hamburg. It’s always been a great place and is getting better all the time. The recent road work and the enhancements on Main and Buffalo streets are a big part of that and obvious to all.
Another, and unknown to most people, is that last year, a community garden was started in Hamburg. It is a wonderful opportunity for people, like my wife and I, who do not have sufficient room or sunlight in our yard, to have a vegetable garden.
We started our garden last year and enjoyed the pleasure found working in a quiet open field, the camaraderie of our fellow residents/gardeners, the opportunity to share our crops with local food pantries and the special taste of vegetables whose miraculous birth from the soil we witnessed in wonder.
I’d like to thank Lockwood’s Greenhouses, who set aside a portion of their arable land off Clark Street for the garden, for their green initiative in making available tilled plots, convenient watering and expert guidance (we were ranked beginners last year).
The community garden welcomes you to join us; the next few weeks are just the right time to begin.
