|Mark, Eagle Candidate|
Officially named the Bee Happy Garden, FUN has already planted spinach, kale, collard greens, lettuce and carrots. Although it is too late in the year to harvest these this fall, they will survive the winter and thrive in the spring.
are plans for expansion at this location. The finished garden will contain 22
raised beds, paved pathways and high-sided beds for access by those who use
wheelchairs. You know all about our beehives (hence the name of the garden)
which have been very productive at this site. There are also plans for a small
food forest on the hillside near the garden.
Thanks to all of you who helped our dream become a reality. Thanks to the Rotary Club of Bailey’s Crossroads for their financial support. Thanks to First Christian Church for the land, donations, and dedication to feeding the hungry. Thanks to Mark, Troop 875, friends and family for your sweat equity. All of your contributions will help provide food for those in need, right here in our local community.
