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.
