I can't tell you how excited I am for the 2011 gardening season. We have some BIG plans for expanding the community garden this year!
Please RSVP for the April 30th event by clicking here . If you are bringing multiple members of your family, please fill out a separate RSVP form for each individual. This way we'll be sure to have breakfast, lunch, and t-shirt for everyone in your group!
Thanks to a grant FPCG received, in partnership with the Village of Forest Park, we finally have some resources to make those garden improvements we've all been wanting for a while now. These include:
new fence and gate
better water access
more raised beds
a new "Food Pantry" garden where we will grow produce for the Forest Park Food Pantry.
a "Help Yourself" garden where passers by are encouraged to pick some veggies.
huge plantings of native drought tolerant plants
We hope to see you there!
HUGE GARDEN BUILD DAY APRIL 30TH 8-1 FREE FOOD AND T-SHIRT PLEASE RSVP
Please sign up to volunteer at our HUGE work day on April 30th (8AM-1PM). The Comcast Corporation is sponsoring this event and will be bringing 60 of their own people to help. But, we have a LOT of work to do and would like to have at least 100 volunteers that day, so WE NEED YOU! As incentive you will be provided with breakfast, lunch, and a t-shirt from Comcast. We will be building raised beds, moving compost around, planting native plants, and mulching.
