Community Garden pilot project begins

Posted Apr 27, 2022 12:16 PM

On Tuesday, six students from the JAG Karns Building with 7th and 8th grade students assisted six adults in planting vegetables in raised beds at the 12th Street Community Garden. The adults reside at the Bicentennial Manor, Bartell, and in the local community.  

The mission of the pilot project is to connect generations through gardening and social interaction. Vegetable plants grown at the Westwood School Greenhouse were donated by Live Well Geary County. In addition, vegetable plant donations & tool racks were donated by Waters/True Value.  Witt Services gave a discount on plants, and a discount for services rendered was received from Johnson Landscaping, and volunteer Dennis Bobbitt.                        

The organization is in partnership with Live Well Geary County and the 12th Street Community Garden.
