The Community Garden movement sweeping the country has found its time in McKinney. Mark your calendar for Tuesday, September 13th, and join in to discuss the development of McKinney’s Community Garden. The meeting will take place at 6:30 p.m. at the Helen Hall Library located at 101 E. Hunt St.
Tending a Community Garden is a great way for communities to produce food for personal use, as well as for those in need. Participants will enjoy the benefits of creating a community where volunteers will be able to learn and practice organic gardening methods, grow local, and enjoy fresh and nutritious produce.
This preliminary planning meeting is to evaluate interest and discuss options and plans. Volunteers will be needed for a Steering committee, and several subcommittees, even before the gardening begins next spring.
