Transition Schenectady is partnering with Vale Cemetery to create the Vale Urban Farm.
Please consider helping by donating your time or providing financial assistance. All contributions are tax-deductible.
"All food at the Vale Urban Garden is grown organically, using no pesticides or herbicides.
We work together with the cemetery, beautifying our acre to enhance this stunningly gorgeous piece of land and history in the heart of Schenectady. The cemetery is generous with its' resources, helping us out with the use of their facilities in various ways. We couldn't do it without them!
Last fall, they bundled and dropped huge bales of leaves that became our winter mulch and will gradually become our fertilizer as well,, keeping them out of the landfill as they enrich our soil."
