The South Pasadena Community Garden ad hoc committee will host a town meeting on 2-9-13 in Council Chambers, from 10 am to noon. The purpose of the meeting is to inform SP gardeners about the proposed community garden in our city. A survey was done in 2011 to determine local interest and the positive feedback from the survey indicates there is an interest and a desire for such a garden.
The committee has worked hard in the last few months to identify possible sites and to anticipate needs and issues. Committee members have met with other local community garden reps, developed a preliminary site plan, discussed hours of operation, security, notified neighbors close to the site, etc. More work and volunteers are needed to establish the community garden.
It is anticipated that the garden will consist of individual raised bed plots to be rented and worked by each gardener, and it may include a gathering or staging area for talks or demonstrations.
South Pasadenans are encouraged to participate in this meeting, find out more about this exciting addition to the city, ask questions, possibly even put in an application for a plot.
