Pine Ridge Community Garden
The Pine Ridge Community Garden is a communal garden located within the Pine Ridge Community. The Boys and Girls Club, Parents as Teachers, a day care facility, and area residents will be involved in the garden project. The garden will help provide fresh produce through a food bank to the residents who otherwise might not eat fresh fruits and vegetables. A secondary purpose of the garden is to produce a “success zone” within the neighborhood where people of different ages, experiences and skills can come together for a common goal of producing healthy food.
Funds from the Kansas Community Garden Grant will be used to help purchase tools and equipment, irrigation supplies, a compost bin and other basic gardening supplies to help establish the garden.
