Westview Community Garden: Confirmed

Thanks to the hard work of the Westview Community Organization, Westview was granted permission to lease a vacant lot on South Gordon and convert it to a community garden.

As per the President ” my plan is to have individual beds that are 4 x 12 feet in size.  The cost per bed per year will be between $15 and $20 depending on the number of gardeners we get to participate.  Our biggest expense in the first year will be getting the water turned on, amending the soil and purchase of a lawn mower.  The cost per bed will be to ensure that we get the right tools to begin our project.”
