Through threatening clouds, light sprinkles and an occasional blast of sunshine members of Lakewood First Lions Club, Springbrook Connection, Pacific Neighborhood Association, Partners for Parks and the City of Lakewood Parks & Recreation Department rallied to the raised beds and truck-load of fresh soil at Springbrook Park to plant everything from acorn squash to strawberries.
The planting project, part of the overall park improvement goals, was designed as a teaching tool to educate local kids in the pleasures of gardening and including wholesome vegetables in their diets.
Before the kids arrived it was the parents and volunteers that hauled dirt and filled the newly relocated raised beds.
Lakewood First Lions Club meets every 2nd and 4th Mondays at noon at the Ram Restaurant in Lakewood. The club welcomes visitors and is open to new memberships.Print This Post
