Community Garden Program
- Provide residents with an opportunity to learn about sustainable local gardening practices
- Provide youth with an opportunity to learn about the value of environmental stewardship
- Provide opportunities for Construction Trades training for program participants
- Provide fresh fruits and vegetables to a local food pantry
Through this program, the City has worked with Graham School and Levister Towers to build a garden for those community partners, as well as building a City-run garden on the Third Street Fire House lawn located on 3rd street and 7th Avenue. Assistance provided by the City in developing and building these gardens have run from the Planning phase through Implementation. For the Levister Towers garden, this included the creation of 3D renderings to give residents a perspective on what the garden would look like once completed and construction and materials assistance.
