Last Saturday, No. 5, the Island community turned out in full force to help the Community Solar Greenhouse of Martha’s Vineyard raise our new and much-needed greenhouse roof. Led by Jeremiah Brown, lead foreman at Vineyard Gardens, the roof-raisers slipped the old roof off, then wrestled and secured two layers of new plastic to complete the bright transformation. Volunteers from across the Island, the Dukes County Community Service and members pitched in to ensure a healthy growing environment for Comsog’s organic plants, flowers, vegetables and educational programs. The seedlings are already smiling at the difference! Thanks to all the willing workers — your generous work will pay off in wonderful years of great growing.
