Community work parties for new Community Garden in Greenwood Park

August 1st, 2011 · Comments

Once contractors are done working on the new Community Garden in Greenwood Park, volunteers will be needed at three work parties to build the raised garden beds, fill them with dirt and compost, and build a tool shed and compost bins.

  • Saturday, August 13: 12-4pm
  • Saturday, August 20: 10-2pm
  • Saturday, September 10: 10-2pm

The contractors are grading the garden, building a concrete wall and fence plus benches, crushed gravel pathways, and stairs connecting the garden with the park. They are expected to be done by Aug. 11.

You can check the progress of the garden and work parties on Vision Greenwood Park’s Facebook page.

Vision Greenwood Park, the volunteer group spearheading the work, still needs about $1,000 to pay for all the garden materials. You can donate online.
