Spring 2012: Ready, Set, GO!

Hello FPCG friends! Look! We got a new beautiful official-looking Forest Park Community Garden sign! This is one of many additions you'll notice this spring also including: message board where we'll post info about the garden and upcoming events new bench swing which will be placed outside the garden fence so that everyone can enjoy it (the swing should arrive any day now). compost bin where we can dispose of our garden waste (no weeds please!) and produce our own rich compost new sign for the Giving Garden which will explain how it works and invite people to harvest New volunteer and education opportunities ... just to name a few.
