Here we grow again! The Hilltop Community Garden is under construction this summer, just across the street from our Childcare Center on South College Avenue. By fall we will have a waterline, new fencing, and raised beds for garden boxes.
There will be interactive children's garden tools, a mud kitchen, garden root boxes, a pavilion, musical instruments, and raised garden beds to start! We will also have a children's learning circle! This children's garden will be five times bigger than our current playground when done.
Under construction: to be open in Spring 2022
Nicknamed Sparky’s Community Garden, our early childhood interactive garden will be open the same hours as Hilltop's childcare. Once completed, garden produce will be given to those who grow it and the Hilltop Food Pantry.
We are so excited to bring this project to the Hilltop neighborhood and grateful for the donors who made it possible. Children need to run and play in grass and giggle with their friends, so do adults, and learning to grow your own food and flowers are life skills we can all benefit from!
Let's all GROW together!
