Hey kids! The Lafayette Community Garden will be hosting its second Our Secret Garden series.
Beginning June 30, Eli Chan will offer children a chance to get personal about ecology. On Monday and Thursday mornings from 9am to 10am, kids (and their caregivers) will head outside and connect with nature through stories, physical activity and garden-related crafts. They will be armed with the tools to make good food and lifestyle choices. Caregivers will learn how to nurture our next generation to be enthusiastic about their bodies, the environment and our community.
Together, we will become caring human beings who are part of an interconnected natural world. Join us in the garden and get ready to dig deeper than before!
Sign up now to become a first-class community leader.
We have established new hours for member work days at the Garden. By the way, if you are not a member, these are good times to come see the garden.
- Tuesday, 3 – 8,
- Thursday 9 – 11
- Saturday, 8 – 2
Saturday, May 26, there will be a work party at the garden from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
We’ll be building a short bamboo fence around the large oaks (to discourage
folks from walking in an area which still has some poison oak.) And we need to attach
the newly installed rabbit fence to the main fence with small pieces of wire. Leah may
need help building some wooden beds in the southeast corner. And we continue to need folks to pick up the asphalt that is spread
throughout the site.
Please bring water, a hat, gloves if you have them, and sunscreen.
Wow. Obviously, when Suzanne Frey said that her LDS Helping Hands group was to going to volunteer for a work day at the garden, we were all pleased. But we are blown away with the effort and the results. The photos tell the story. Thank you LDS!
