A recent article by NID News about the Old Schoolhouse Community Garden highlighted the plans that have been laid out for it. The plans are ambitious, but the end result would yield a gorgeous, family friendly community garden to be proud of.
The current community garden area (highlighted in the below picture) would remain at its current location, but the large, open area to the east and south of the garden is in for a transformation.
The first step in the project: planting 50 fruit and nut trees obtained through a grant from The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation. This step is slated for Saturday, June 22nd, 2019. If you're interested in volunteering to help plant, check out the flyer below. I know I'll be there!
This is a fabulous project that reflects well on the surrounding neighborhoods. It has exposed students of the Immanuel Christian Academy to gardening and garden planning and ,with any luck, it will inspire more people to explore both personal and community gardening. The addition of trees and gardens will help to beautify the area, attract wildlife (such as pollinators), and provide delicious and nutritious produce.
