A committee has been formed headed by a Master Gardener to organize the development of a community garden in Laurel. A community garden; what a wonderful addition to an area that already offer many opportunities for citizens to meet, greet and enjoin in recreation, entertainment, socialization, business endeavors and other good causes. Now a community garden: Wow! That's an opportunity to grow food for ourselves and to share it. A location and a "go ahead" from city officials is still working itself out.
The technical expertise of planting and cultivating is already in our backyard. And, those with knowledge and experience to engineer such a project have shared their knowledge with the committee.
Just letting you all know that another good thing could be coming to Laurel very soon. Will keep you posted.
