Bruce Monroe Community Garden Expansion!:

Bruce Monroe Community Garden
Georgia Ave between Columbia Rd and Irving St NW
Saturday, July 14th, 2012
9:00am – 12:00pm | FREE!

The Bruce Monroe Community Garden is growing and we need your help!

Join us this Saturday, July 14, from 9:00am Noon, and help build a new set of raised beds at the garden! Over 100+ community members already participate in the garden and we are looking to expand this great community resource! The community garden features composting facilities, a learning garden for kids, fruit and nut trees, as well as shared and reserved plots.

Once completed, these new plots will be immediately available, just in time for the late summer and fall harvest. Whether youve never gardened before or are looking to upgrade from your balcony container garden, wed love to have you as a part of our garden community!

No building/construction experience necessary and well provide gloves, tools, and guidance. Just come with some sunscreen and a bottle of water. A quick email to [email protected] to let us know you’re coming would be appreciated.

The Bruce Monroe Community Garden is located in Bruce Monroe Park (Georgia Ave between Columbia Rd and Irving St, NW), behind the tennis courts.
