Planting the Seed!

Posted on Updated on

Please join us as we create the Lafayette Community Garden and Outdoor Learning Center.

Since 2008, a core group of nineteen community members, including educators and master gardeners, has been looking for a community garden and outdoor education center.

In February of 2011, EBMUD and the City of Lafayette agreed to allow the community to use the multi-acre site in front of the Filter Plant on Mt. Diablo Boulevard.Β  In addition to learning sustainable gardening practices at the site, we will have the opportunity to learn about the local habitat displayed by the beautiful oak, bay laurel and other plants along the adjacent creek.

Community support has grown as the concept has been shared with local seniors, garden clubs, scouts, families and individuals looking for opportunity to create a model of respectful land use and civic cooperation.

In April 2011, Sustainable Lafayette became the fiscal sponsor of the project.
