Community Gardens: Upcoming Events and Garden Hours

Fossil stepping stone project at Garden of Eaton
Garden City Harvest’s Community Gardens host regular community building events such as potlucks and communal projects.  These events are a great opportunity for gardeners to connect and work alongside one another.  Past projects have included, planting a raspberry patch, making fossil stepping stones, building compost bins, planting herb spirals, turning compost, and preparing a community food security plot.  Part of community gardening is caring for your own plot, but part is helping to care for your community garden.  These events are a great way to participate in a larger way, so please join in!
