It provides the opportunity for neighbours to get to know each other and exchange gardening advice... this provides another kind of security for the neighbourhood." "I now have an instant vegetable garden in a space that was previously occupied by a few decorative plants. Thank you Boulevard Veg!" Quotes "We have our boxes planted and I have seen a few people reading the plaque to see what they are all about." "I think this is an amazing initiative and would happy to provide any additional info/photos/feedback that you might need for your report. I look forward to reading your newsletter." "It was really awesome to have such a beautiful planter box, dropped right at our door no less!" "It's a great program, and I'm so glad to hear it's getting the recognition and interest it deserves." "We planted tomatoes and herbs and black-eyed-susan's. We harvested about
2 pounds of tomatoes, which was quite good given the late planting!" "I am planning to plant some holiday plants in the next week. The only
issue we have had is water coming out the sides when we were watering.
I think I will put a liner in them if I replant them for next spring." "We have made a nice salad with the lettuce and I used the parsely for my morning green juice. I really appreciate how they look in my front patio." "Right now, I am growing lettuce, spinach, parsley, beets and snap peas. I am having a little trouble with the bugs eating at some of the leaves, so any tips are greatly appreciated."
