Community garden hosting moving event Aug. 7

PAWTUCKET – Operators of the Taft Street Community Garden are planning a moving event for Saturday, Aug. 7, at 8 a.m.

Those participating are asked to meet at Varieur School, 486 Pleasant St., at 9 a.m.

“Please join us for a fun-filled, family-friendly event,” states an invitation. “Learn more about the garden, transplant our vegetables, and help us move.”

The garden is being moved from near the Tidewater Landing site where a new soccer stadium is being built to an area behind Varieur School through an arrangement between the operators and the developers of the Tidewater project.

The Aug. 7 event is being planned in collaboration with Fortuitous Partners, Dimeo Construction, the city of Pawtucket, and the Narragansett Bay Commission.
