April 30th Build Day Success!
With a volunteer force numbering near 100 people, on April 30th Forest Park Community Garden went through a transformation of major proportions. Despite all odds, the weather was great, all the materials were delivered on time, and we were able to complete almost all of the projects we had hoped. These included:
- 20+ new raised garden beds
- new shed
- new "sharing" garden (FPCG will plant and maintain the garden and invite anyone to harvest anything from it)
- new prairie garden along fence rows
- new decorative shrubs
- new wood chips spread throughout garden area
Below are some pictures of the event. Also, you can read the Forest Park Review's story about the build day here. We can't even begin to thank everyone who pitched in for all their hard work. Thank you!
