South Hawthorne Community Garden Is Coming Together
Michael Klick sent me an email asking that I spread the word about progress with the "South Hawthorne Community Garden." The photo above was taken by Kevin, a neighbor who is on board with the project, and shows where the garden will be located.
We have the approval to use the lot at 2123 6th St. North for our community garden! Things are falling into place very nicely. We will have an initial garden meeting at the next Environmental Committee meeting at Fairview Park on Monday March 30th at 7pm. We will dicuss the garden and the garden building days that we will need to have to build the garden. This is tenatively
scheduled for the middle of April. maybe the 18th.
It is exciting news. We already have six people committed to the garden and have room for more people. We are also going to need able bodies with wheelbarrows and shovels to help fill the raised beds with the two dump truck loads of dirt we are getting hauled in.
Spread the word.
