Did you know that we have a Community Garden? It's located on the west lawn, in the south corner. It began in 2018 as a dream we had with a few of our community members and neighbors. Our garden is a communal garden. What does that mean? We all work together to make our garden wonderful; planning, planting, watering, weeding, and harvesting.
We have planted herbs, peppers, tomatoes, strawberries, lettuces, and other various veggies in past years. At harvest time, we have enjoyed the veggies and herbs in the shop and given away the bounty to our community.
This will be our fourth year planting, and we are excited to get the ball rolling for another great year of the Fairmount Community Garden! In 2020, we were blessed with a generous grant from the Wichita Community Foundation, which will allow us to expand the garden and offer some educational events/experiences for our community.
Here's what we need to make it all happen:
Ongoing Garden Volunteers: We need people to help plan, plant, water/weed, and harvest this year's Community Garden. We welcome both the novice and the experienced. If you are interested in learning about gardening or have gardening experience, we’d love to have you on the team!
Construction Volunteers: We need people to help plan, build, and construct our expansion, as well as help install an irrigation system.
If you want to learn more, fill out the short interest form (via the button below) to let us know how you are interested in helping! And we will be in touch to see what role you can play in our Fairmount Community Garden Team!
