After months of planning, awesome gardening workshops, guest speakers, and packets and packets of seeds – The Stamford Seed Savers group will be driving the first screws, pounding the first nails, and shoveling the first dirt to kick off the community garden project.
The goal of the community garden project is to re-purpose the severely deteriorating tennis courts behind the Stamford Elementary School and transform this rarely, if ever, used area of the grounds into a shining example of community building and outdoor learning space for all.
Several ideas for the space are already in the planning stage but it all begins with building the raised beds and filling them with the soil generously donated by local businesses.
Come be a part of the kick off work bee on June 27th from 5:30pm to 7pm at the community garden. Feel free to bring a broom, hammer, shovel, rake, cordless drill or saw, any ideas for the space you may have, and plenty of community spirit!
