The DotRox Cooperative Garden Center will be a community-based gardening center in Dorchester or Roxbury, located near public transportation.

The store will be full-service offering plants, seeds, pots, soil, pest-control products, tools, light hardware and other items for gardeners. We will supply specialty items for immigrants and other communities that have a hard time finding what they need. We also will have workshops on gardening as well as on health and wellness. As a cooperative business, consumers and workers will be its owners.
 
Those of us working on the project are volunteers and need others to help. Ways to participate include promoting the project, serving on a committee and becoming a member. The more helpers we have, the more successful we'll be.
 
Please distribute this information to your gardener friends, family and networks, especially in the Grove Hall, Upham’s Corner, Codman Square and Egleston Square neighborhoods.
 
Feel free to contact Gerald at gmrobbins@yahoo.com or 617-241-7717 if you have questions or ideas.
