Community gardening is about to expand in Southwest DC! Our group has received a national garden makeover award from Fiskars Brands, Inc., which will allow the group to build a community garden in Lansburgh Park with a budget of $50,000. Southwest Community Gardens was the only garden to be selected for this makeover out of over 400 applicants across the US.
The Fiskars Garden Makeover will take place on one day in the summer of 2013. The community garden is expected to be built in late July or early August. Check this website and our Facebook and Twitter pages to stay up-to-date on our progress and to see how you can help.
We want to thank the Southwest Neighborhood Assembly, our fiscal sponsor, and the Southwest community groups that helped us along the way. We couldn’t have done this without you!
