Letter from Diane
I am pleased to inform you that our grant application for the community garden at Foothills Elementary School was approved by the Lakewood City Council for funding in 2017 in the amount of $40.000.00!
We are so excited as a community and school to receive this grant. We will be working with Denver Urban Gardens. They have developed a wonderful design site plan that we will follow through this process.
This is something I have never done so I will need everyone's help in making this successful. Your input is very important.
I will keep you informed of our upcoming meeting for anyone who is interested in being part of our community garden. If you have any questions or concerns please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 303-986-9400.
Diane Rhodus, President GMCA
