Community garden looking for aid
Published: March 21, 2006
Spring officially began Monday and already work is starting at the Lincoln City Community Garden at Northwest 21st Street and Highway 101.
A retaining wall is being built that will almost triple the square- footage of garden space available.
JoDana Bright-Taylor, OSU master gardener, heads the community garden and has been busy behind the scenes for several months.
Started last summer, the garden, though much smaller, was successful. While the expansion of the garden is a great opportunity, it isn't free. This all-volunteer project is seeking financial and in-kind donations to help cover costs. The group is raising $3,000 to build raised beds, a tool shed and message board, as well as other projects the group has identified.
Bright-Taylor was appreciative of the community response in 2005. Mill's Ace Hardware donated several necessary tools and North Lincoln Sanitary provided compost bins. Residents provided money, plants, seeds and labor throughout the summer.
An informational and gardener sign-up meeting will be Saturday, April 1, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Lincoln City Community Center. Those interested in gardening and participating in or supporting the garden are encouraged to attend. The garden is open to all residents of the Lincoln City area and participants may be individuals, families or groups.
For more information, e-mail or call 994-3188. Donations may be sent to: Lincoln City Community Garden, c/o JoDana Bright-Taylor, 4358 N.E. E. Devils Lake Road, Otis, OR 97368.
