The Calvin Community Garden in 2011

Diggin’ Shoreline seeks volunteers to help at Calvin Presbyterian Community Garden

Join Diggin’ Shoreline on Saturday, July 16 between 8am and 11am to help restore the Calvin Presbyterian Community Garden!

This wonderful garden is located on a flat, sunny site with plenty of parking available, and is currently fallow. Diggin’ Shoreline is leading the effort to help Calvin Presbyterian restore it as a place where community can gather to help grow food for their families, for the food bank, and free community meals.

Diggin’s goal is to get this garden up and running as soon as possible. With a big volunteer turnout on July 16th, several plots should be ready to go. Our priority will be to prepare beds for planting fall food bank crops.

Plots may also be rented. If you are seeking a garden plot,  application forms and more info will be available that day. The garden is located on the corner of Richmond Beach Road (NE 185th) and 3rd Ave NW. The site is completely ADA accessible, and both the Metro 330 and 331 bus lines stop in front of the garden.

Dress for the weather, and bring sunscreen, digging forks, shovels, and wheelbarrows. The morning’s work will include pulling weeds, laying burlap and covering with chips and digging in compost. School-age children are welcome with parental supervision. This is a great community service opportunity for high school students, too.
