Calling all gardeners. The City of Lakewood, along with several community partners, is looking for a leadership team to help us develop a community garden program. If you are passionate about gardening and willing to help us develop this program please contact the Lakewood Parks and Recreation Department at 253-983-7887. We don’t’ need to start from scratch. We have great program models to use. Our theme is to start small, be organized, be successful and then grow the program! A portion of the garden will be used to grow food for local food banks. Please help us get started on this important community resource. Remember…. We are not just growing a garden. We are growing a community!
