Reminder about the Community Garden
Below is information from Betsy Randall at the Epiphany Church at the corner of Custer and Greenleaf. We’re partnering with them to have a community garden and they’re now ready to take reservations for garden plots. Follow the directions below if you want to participate, but you should do so quickly because Betsy says the plots are going fast. You can get more information from Margaret Miller (email below) on the details of working on a community garden.
I’m very anxious to see this be a success. I think it’s going to be lots of fun as well as being a community builder.
Heights Park N.A.
Epiphany Neighborhood Garden
Join our Heights Park neighbors at the Epiphany Neighborhood Garden in the exciting first planting season of our community garden. Plots are now open for reservation. There are limited plots. Reservations will be taken on a first come, first serve basis. Simply email Margaret Miller with your contact information at email@example.com to hold a plot for spring planting and to get all the information you need. No money is required for a reservation. Cost for the year is only $75 and will be collected in January. This fee helps to cover water and general maintenance of the garden.
Where is the garden? Episcopal Church of the Epiphany is located at 421 Custer Road, right in our neighborhood. How big is the plot? Each individual plot is 5×20 feet. What does it offer for our neighborhood? Community gardens live up to their name: They build community! The garden will provide a place to plant and harvest food, a place for folks to meet and get to know one another, a learning center for scouts and school children and many more benefits.
On a side note: Two girl scouts hoping to earn their Gold Award have set in motion plans to install picnic table, benches and some landscaping. One area will offer space for gathering and socializing, the other for prayer and meditation. We also have scout groups who have asked to reserve plots. Things are rolling!
