Earth Day Success

Posted on Updated on

It was great fun celebrating Earth Day with an open house at the Community Garden and Learning Center yesterday.  We had a good turn out and featured docent led tours, bird watching with an expert from the Audubon Society, a glass bee hive hosted by the Mount Diablo Bee Keepers Association and more.  Big plans for this week including digging post holes for the perimeter fence and a work day on Saturday.

Below is a photo of the birders spotting an Acorn Woodpecker (clown of the Oak forest!).  You can see a lot more photos from yesterday at our Facebook page.

Kickoff Gathering

Posted on Updated on

We gathered at the Lafayette Reservoir today for the official kickoff of the Lafayette Community Garden project after three years of planning.

Lot’s of energy around planning, building community and then growing food.  Got a glimpse of preliminary drawings and schedule for fund raising, permitting, construction and then planting and harvesting.
