In Our Garden…

by dhna

The Dolphin Heights Community Garden was founded about 1 year ago on a vacant lot on Silver Ave by community residents. It is a place that all residents can gather to grow fruits and vegetables and enjoy beautiful open space in Dolphin Heights.

The garden is also being used as a learning tool for the kids in the Dolphin Heights After School Program (ASP). Right now we are learning about plant growth and deciding which types of fruits and vegetables we can grow this summer.

As always, we need your help! Ready to grow your own berries for breakfast? Tomatoes for the best salsa in town? We welcome you to join us! For more information please contact us.
