Come by Wednesday from 2:00 until 6:00PM and Thursday from 9:00AM until noon to adopt a plant for your personal garden. We have tomatoes, cucumbers and various herbs at the table near the entrance for you to nurture. While you are here, feel free to stroll around and see how the former parking lot has transformed. To us, its a sanctuary. See what it can be for you.

Bring a brown bag lunch and come to the MUNCH-A-LUNCH READ ALOUD under the oak trees at the Lafayette Community Garden.
During this relaxed hour, we will embark on a journey to celebrate the beginning of summer vacation. From 12:15–1:30PM Monday through Friday, Lynn De Jonghe will be reading Rabbit Hill by Robert Lawson. This Newbury Award winning classic asks what will happen to the animals of a country hillside when new folks move into the abandoned house nearby. Will they be hunters? Gardeners? Will they be willing to share their food?
This FREE event for all ages of young at heart will feature homemade cookies and afternoon sun tea. (Children ages 5 to 11 should be accompanied by an adult, but readers of all ages are welcome.)
