City Launches New Community Garden Project
Do you have a "green thumb" when it comes to planting? Do you like to garden but don't have appropriate space where you live? Or do you simply like the idea of meeting others in a beautiful outdoor setting?
The City of Indian Wells is in the process of establishing an organic Community Garden adjacent to City Hall. This project not only offers yet another benefit for residents, but also supports the city's commitment to sustainable living practices. Ryan Bowen, the city's expert landscape architect, has already planted a sample garden (see his fabulous example in these photos) and would be available to assist residents with their individual plots. Indian Wells residents who wish to participate and cultivate a garden bed would pay a nominal $25 fee per year to establish and maintain their gardens.
An organic Community Garden offers many benefits: In addition to providing fresh and pesticide-free flowers, vegetables and herbs, it provides an area for socializing, offers a natural teaching/learning environment for people of all ages, and creates a sense of community pride and stewardship of the land.
Fifty (50) 4-foot by 10-foot garden plots will be available for planting. An interest list is now forming. To learn more and add your name to the interest list today, call City Hall, (760) 346-2489.
