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 email@example.com or call me at 303-986-9400.
Diane Rhodus, President GMCA
Sept. 20, 1-4 pm: Community Garden Prep
Oct. 5, 6pm: Annual Meeting - We will invite this year's candidates and if necessary, ballot issue representatives.
Community Garden at Foothills Elementary
We are ready to start construction of our community garden at Foothills Elementary.
Denver Urban Gardens is scheduling two work days.
Wednesday, Sept. 20th from 1:00-4:00p.m. You will have to check in at the front office before going to garden. The next day will be Saturday, October 7th from 9:00-12:00 p.m.
We will be starting pathways, turning compost and possibly building the raised beds. Bring your gloves, shovel and rake and let's get started!!!
The seasons dictate that we will probably have limited fall crops, but it is still the time to get your plot.
