Volunteers of Lake Country Garden for Good is community garden cared for by volunteers. All the produce is donated to area food pantries and free meal sites. GFG is also a demonstration garden for organic gardening and the "double digging" method for increasing the amount of plantings and food production per square foot.
We had an exciting first planning meeting! About 20 of you braved the weather to meet and plan the upcoming growing season on March 20th.
We welcome everyone's help and if you didn’t make the March 20 meeting, no worries. You can be kept up to date and see what we will be working on, sign up for scheduled work dates, or to get on the calendar for this season of weed n’ watering byContacting Us Right Here. Even sharing one hour of time will be appreciated.

Our first work day, on April 12 (5pm), will be a Instruction and Practice for Double Digging. Once you have participated in this training, you can come and dig on your own. Our goal is to have the spring garden plots Double Dug by planting day on April 16.
