EAS+Y Builds New Community Garden

Posted by on Mar 2, 2016 in BLOG, Evergreen Community Garden | 3 Comments

IMG_5967 Starting in March EAS+Y will begin construction of a new community garden and nature-based play area with the help of a $43,900 grant from Great Outdoors Colorado. The garden will be located at Wilmot Elementary, at the corner of Hatch Drive and Buffalo Park Road. It will host 30 garden beds, a toolshed, a shaded gathering area for classes, meetings and workshops. The nature based play area will feature an interactive play area utilizing natural elements such as sand pit, green tunnels, boulders for climbing as well as a sensory garden.

Interested in volunteering for the construction work days? Email Shawn Hamam at ShawnHamam at Yahoo dot com to get the scoop.

    I read in the courier that there will be a lottery for plots at EHS. I can’t track down what the date is for this? can you let me know the date and time and how I could enter the lottery for a plot.

    Thanks!

      Cherie-
      Super YAY!! that you’re interested in a plot at the Buffalo Park Community Garden! Mark your calendar for April 28th, 6pm, Evergreen High School library. We’ll be hosting a Plot Lottery Plottery! This will be a live lottery for half of the plots. Must be present to win at this event. Already have plans??? There will be a mail-in lottery, too. We’re just putting the finishing touches on the forms. You’ve been added to EAS+Y’s email group and once those forms are created, you’ll be notified that they’re downloadable.

      Also on this site and via our newsletter, watch for volunteer opportunities to help with construction of the garden. There’s always jobs for everyone!

      Grins!
