Bountiful Brookline Organization Local Foods Initiative Survey
A Brookline local food initiative has conducted a survey among Brookline residents to learn about the interest in gardening among those who live and work in Brookine.
Bountiful Brookline, a volunteer-based local food initiative, was founded in 2009 in response to unmet needs for locally grown food. Bountiful Brookline's vision is for Brookline to create and sustain a local food system that is accessible to all. Land costs and availability in Brookline, an urban edge community, make it unfeasible to create a single site community farm. With almost 60,000 residents and one 80 plot community garden, access to garden space is further limited as more than 70 percent of Brookline residents live in densely developed multifamily housing. Data from the brief survey will advance Bountiful Brookline's efforts to increase opportunities to garden in the community.
