So excited to announce that the garden fence is finished! This crucial and important step in the project will allow us to have a soft garden opening in the spring!
Excited to announce that some of the garden beds we ordered have come in! Eight Garden beds have been put together and are being filled with dirt. We are working with the garden bed company to get the rest once they get them in stock.
After a break due to snow, we were finally able to lay the landscaping fabric! Our team worked hard and now we have some material being dropped of so we can start laying the gravel. We are also in the process of getting the garden beds. So excited to see all the hard work coming together!
Thanks to a generous donation from Lowes and hard working volunteers, we were able to start trenching and putting in the irrigation. We are super excited to start on one of the most expensive parts of the project!
A gofundme account has been created so we can share to friends, communities and more to help raise the money for the garden. Help us out by sharing and getting the word out! You can find the website on our donations page!
Keep an eye out for our banner!
Here Kelly is putting together our first plot box!
Today we met with the irrigation specialist to get a price on the irrigation portion of the project.
We finally broke ground on the fence work. Due to the rain and the cold temperatures, its taking longer than normal to finish. We are hopeful that the fence will be complete by the end of the week!
The base coat of gravel was put down today to provide a foundation for the beds and walking paths. The garden beds are still on back order and we are still waiting on the compost bins to arrive.
The Irrigation has been placed and covered. We had a team test out the water to check for leaks and all looks well! There has also been some electric work run so that there will be lighting for those who like to work later in the day!
We are planning our next fund raiser! Come out and enjoy a family fun day with your pets at our Fall Festival Featuring Pet Palooza on October 30th 10am-4pm! So excited to see everyone and all proceeds will go to the garden funds!
We had our first official workday for the community garden. We planned more fund raisers, went to near by neighborhoods, work on applications and planned our next workday.
Here is the area for the garden from above
The flyers have been ordered and they are on the way. Once they arrive they will be sent out to local neighborhoods.
We have mapped out where the garden will be and put out the flags to mark the area!
Today our volunteers helped load garden ready soil into the beds. the weather was challenge but we made some progress on the garden!
Due to supply chain issues, we had to postpone the community garden opening to spring 2023. We are sorry to postpone and are working hard so we can still accomplish our goals. Updates will be posted frequently.
Our volunteers started putting in the irrigation! The plan for irrigation is to provide each garden bed with their own source of water. Most of it was laid and now we are waiting to connect to the main water source.
Had another small fund raiser that was successful! Sold some hotdogs, drinks, chips and had a car wash. Come visit the church yard sales and get yourself some goods and you’ll see us there!
The community garden was given a very generous donation of fencing! Thank you to all the supporters and donators, we could not do this without you.
The first plot has been put in place!
We have our first official fund raiser going! We have painted some planters. The goal is to fill the pots with your spare change and once it is full, the pot is returned, emptied and then someone else can pick it up to fill it back up!
