FOOGI boasts 10 years of successful plant swaps

foogi-plant-swap4On Saturday, June 13th Friends of Oak Grove, also known as FOOGI, held their annual community plant swap at the Malden Community Garden on the Malden bike path

Now on its 10th year, the event was well attended by “old timers” as well as a new “crop” of Maldonian gardeners. People from the neighborhood showed up ready to share from their gardens, anything from small herbs to ready to plant pear, peach and fig trees.

FOOGI’s mission statement includes turning neighbors into friends and organizing community activities.
