We recently went to Colorado to visit family. We really love the area. All opinions stated are mine and mine alone. Your thoughts and ideas may be different.
Come Fly With Me, Come Fly Come Fly Away – To The Garden of Eatin‘
at Castle Rock Adventist Health Campus.
When we are in the Denver area, I like to stop by the Castle Rock Adventist Health Campus Community Garden.
It’s a very calm and lovely place to spend 20 or 3o minutes. There are swings for the grand kids to play on, places to sit to watch a sunrise or sunset, and of course the lovely garden beds (both traditional and raised). There is a covered pavilion with an outdoor kitchen, but I’ve never looked into who can use it. I’ll have to check on that the next time we visit.
They even have fruit trees planted along the outer perimeter.
As I was sitting watching my grandson on the swings, a cute little bunny hopped out from under this plant. He was too quick for me, so I didn’t get a picture of him. He was almost the exact same color as the rocks, so I didn’t even notice him when I sat down.
The Garden’s Mission:
The mission of this program is to create a sustainable community garden where all members of our community can congregate in a holistic, healing environment to locally grow and harvest nutritious foods while developing an appreciation for healthy lifestyles and capitalizing on wellness based community partnerships and specialized education.
Members of the local community can apply for a garden bed for a year at a time, for a small fee ($75 per bed, in 2014) which not only includes the bed and but also water for the growing season.
Do you have a community garden in your area? If so, I’d love to hear about it!
