New Additions

Thanks to a wonderful group of volunteers sponsored by the Presbyterian Church of Fort Worth, TX, the garden received two new benches and two gorgeous redwood raised beds! Gardeners and visitors now have a great place to rest as they take in the beauty of the garden. The raised beds will have a new home right at the front of the garden next year, in order to be close to the entrance and to accommodate garden helpers who may have some difficulties working on the ground.  Thank you to all for such great work in support of our garden community!

Thank you Glenwood Middle School!

Recently, middle-schoolers came by to help us get two important gardens started –the Kid’s Garden and our Herbal Garden.  They also brought plants to include, birdhouses for our back fence, and homemade bird-feeders.  What a wonderful contribution to our sustainable community!  We are grateful for the support and effort.

Our Traveling Visitors

Did you know that the Community Garden received visitors from 24/50 states in 2018?  At least according to our first ever guestbook, we were able to capture the wonderful reflections of visitors from all over the United States.  There may have even been more state visitors, not reflected there. We even had visitors from Germany and China!  We love being a park-like attraction to Glenwood Springs visitors. Stop by sometime this summer and say hello –and sign the guest book too!
