Are the seed catalogs calling your name? City of Keene Parks and Recreation Department is offering space in our Community Gardens for the 2017 growing season.

You can save your spot for this coming season by spotting in at the office. Please be aware of the growing season dates listed below. KPRD will not be out in gardens any earlier.

At the rear of Monadnock View Cemetery, adjacent to Cedarcrest, is a plot of land that KPRD makes available as garden space for the public.  For a nominal fee, folks can rent the space for the season and grow their own veggies!  There is an agreement form to fill out prior to planting, so stop by the Recreation Center at 312 Washington Street to reserve your space.

Sessions are free and for the public.

Session 1: "Who am I?  Who are you?  Who are we?

During this session, community members will think about their social identities and how these affect how we see ourselves, others in our community, and people in the world around us.  Our community will discuss the meaning of diversity, multiculturalism, and equity, and how these concepts are demonstrated in Keene and how we would like to see them in Keene.  There will be an opportunity to examine the potential difficulties and benefits of diversity, multiculturalism, and equity.

The session will provide tangible ways we can all incorporate these concepts into our daily lives with one another.

The College City Commission is a joint effort of the City of Keene and Keene State College charged with facilitating long range planning and short-and long-term recommendations for the college and the City on issues of mutual concern.  It is a model for how a city and college can collaborate effectively and engage each other in the resolution of pressing issues.
