Flagler Village Community Garden looking for gardeners
The Flagler Village Community Garden is a community collaboration, acting under the umbrella of the Flagler Village Civic Association. This is planned to be a temporary project on vacant land that is for sale, but laying fallow in the current market. The property owner, Charlie Ladd, has been very accommodating in allowing this type of project on his lot.
When they started this, the general idea was- Flagler Village is an ideal spot for such a garden because of the dense residential towers and all the vacant land. Why not utilize that land to revitalize the neighborhood with a project that brings neighbors together, while growing their own, healthy, local food and beautifying the neighborhood? So, the reasons for this project are many: community-building, neighborhood revitalization, health, recreation, and a local food source, to name just a few.
The design of the garden is to be composed of 26, 4′ x 8′ plots, depending on the community response. So far those who have joined have heard about the garden by word of mouth. The plan has been basically to ‘build it and they will come’ so they have started with eight plots and will hopefully grow from there.
Come and join a great community garden that is literally just beginning to grow! For much information on how to get involved contact Kate Sheffield at .
