Lafayette Community Garden
Come to the garden Saturday, May 17 for a fun day of making music!
Wind chimes can be made with an exciting mixture of elements. We’ll have fasteners, adhesives, and basic materials, like filament, string, drills, glues, and bamboo. But to make your wind chime uniquely yours, bring items like old keys, bottle caps, earrings, beads, flatware, (smooth) sea glass, and industrial hardware. Just use your imagination!
You’ll have time to make one for yourself and possibly one for the garden. Search the web for inspiration for your music maker!
Join instructor Susan Dannenfelser, local sculptor and garden member, at the Lafayette Community Garden from 2:00PM to 5:00PM to discover your inner artist.

Kids 10 and under, please bring your own adult.

On Sunday, April 6 from 9:30am to 2:00pm, celebrate Spring at this Lafayette Community Garden and Outdoor Learning Center-sponsored fundraising walk.
Explore Mount Diablo with new eyes on this natural and cultural history walk with local wildlife biologist and naturalist Doc Hale, as he interprets the fire ecology of the recent Clayton Burn, wildlife, geology, wildflowers, and the material culture of the Native Americans, their useful, edible, and medicinal plants. We will visit bedrock milling stations, as well as a village site and pictograph site.
Hiking level is easy. Bring lunch and liquids. We will carpool from the garden at 8:30am or meet at 9:30am at the John Muir Picnic Area just below the summit of Mount Diablo.
Cost: $10/individual; $20/family tax-deductible donation to Lafayette Community Garden to support our education programs.*
*A park entrance fee applies at both the north and south entrances, and is separate from the cost of the class.
Do you want to plant a garden, but feel overwhelmed? Or perhaps you are a seasoned gardener who is looking for new ideas to optimize your growing space.
Join us at the Lafayette Community Garden this Sunday from 3:00 to 4:30pm to learn more about creating big gardens in small spaces.
Lori Caldwell, certified Master Gardener and Master Composter, will discuss the possibilities that containers can offer us to make an impact in a small space.
Ms Caldwell will also discuss the topics of maintaining soil fertility, best plants for container gardens, watering and crop rotation.
It’s a great way to start a garden or add on to maximize your existing garden possibilities.
