Fountain Community Garden work day!

Fountain Avenue at St. Andrews Place is about to get a little greener thanks to community volunteers and businesses. The Fountain Community Garden is under construction on a 0.42 acre city-owned property and will feature 50 garden plots, a landscaped area with native plants, and community open space.

On Saturday morning, dozens of volunteers helped build planter beds and plant trees in preparation for local gardeners who will begin planting in about a month. Many thanks to the Home Depot for providing materials and equipment for the work day, and to the many volunteers who made the day a huge success.
