Huge Volunteer Event: April 30th. We Need You!


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
  • tool shed
  • 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.
