Bruce Monroe Community Garden is Growing, Saturday, July 14th

Community gardent at Bruce Monroe Park

From an email announcement I received:

The Bruce Monroe Community Garden is growing and we need your help!

Join us this Saturday, July 14, from 9:00am – Noon, and help build a new set of raised beds at the garden! Over 100+ community members already participate in the garden and we are looking to expand this great community resource! The community garden features composting facilities, a learning garden for kids, fruit and nut trees, as well as shared and reserved plots.

Once completed, these new plots will be immediately available, just in time for the late summer and fall harvest. Whether you’ve never gardened before or are looking to upgrade from your balcony container garden, we’d love to have you as a part of our garden community!

No building/construction experience necessary and we’ll provide gloves, tools, and guidance. Just come with some sunscreen and a bottle of water. A quick email to brucemonroegarden@gmail.com to let us know you’re coming would be appreciated.

The Bruce Monroe Community Garden is located in Bruce Monroe Park (Georgia Ave between Columbia Rd and Irving St, NW), behind the tennis courts.
