Ssshhh…Our Secret Garden II begins Monday, June 30

By Community Events, Gardening Tips, Kids, Outdoor Learning Center, Sustainability, Volunteer

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.

New hours!

By Community Events, Locavore, Volunteer

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

This sunflower is closest to the gate at the Garden. Kind of a show off.

Work Party Saturday!

By Blog, Community Events, News & Events, Volunteer

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.

Glean Energy!

By Blog, Community Events, Volunteer

Persimmons are in season and 12 bighearted volunteers from Saint Mary’s College helped glean a ton, (well 750 pounds) of fruit for Monument Crisis Center. And while they were at it, they picked three boxes of damaged persimmons and fallen pears for Lindsay Wildlife Museum. Not bad for 4 hours of work! Happy Thanksgiving.
