WestSide Farm Project’s main site in 2011 will be at 109 Linden Street. We are looking for additional vacant lots starting at about 2,000 square feet, with good exposure to sunlight. We can use demolition sites, lots that need trees and shrubs removed, odd-shaped lots that might not be suitable for building…as long as there’s plenty of sun and it’s not on a steep grade, it might work for us.
It is never a waste of time to evaluate a potential garden space. We encourage anyone who might be interested in donating land to contact us. Unless there’s a building on the space, or the property is on a steep hillside, we wouldn’t rule it out without a visit.
In addition to providing multiple benefits to the community, there can be significant tax benefits for the donors themselves. WestSide Farm Project is eager to open new gardens in virtually any area in Pittsfield. We accept land transfers, easements, leases, and licenses.
Any landowners considering property donations to WestSide Farm Project should contact Thom Pecoraro at 413-329-1400.
