On February 27, 2012, at special meeting, the Lafayette City Council “approved the license and sub-license agreement with EBMUD and with Lafayette Community Garden and Outdoor Learning Center and Sustainable Lafayette.” Many thanks to all who have worked so hard to make this happen. Now the fun begins.
Last night our request for a building permit was approved by the City of Lafayette Planning Commission. Thanks to all our friends and supporters we now have enough money to start building our fence and garden beds. We look forward to building community as well.
The next step is to formalize an agreement between the City and EBMUD.
We plan to hire a garden manager in January to help coordinate our efforts.
Check back here for regular updates on fundraising, garden membership and our official groundbreaking.
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.
