Demonstration Garden

Gary Oswell

The kick-off meeting for the Demonstration Garden was held on January 10th. The purpose of the meeting was come together and form a Demonstration Garden team and then to generate some really great ideas to get kids excited about gardening ( nutrition, science, reading...).   When the seasons begin to change, and we can do some hands-on work, there will be one weekday evening and one weekend day planned to implement our wonderful ideas.

I look forward to working with you in the garden this summer.
