Garden Talk Lunch Series to kick off July 27th

21 Jun


Pack your lunch and head to the Denton Community Demonstration Garden on the 4th Friday of every month from 12:30 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. for an enjoyable series of lunch-hour garden talks and demonstrations. The series will be held during the Friday Downtown Denton Farmers’ Market, so guests will also be able to shop for locally grown fruits & vegetables, herbs and baked goods

Tables will be set up so that guests will be able to enjoy the garden talks and demonstrations during their lunch break. Discussion topics will range from gardening techniques to culinary creations inspired by the garden. The fourth Friday dates are July 27th, August 24th and September 28th and October 26th.

The Denton Community Demonstration Garden, located by the municipal parking lot at 4th and Gay Streets in downtown Denton, is a community public space that showcases edible plantings, sustainable agricultural techniques, and garden ecology.  The initial plantings of the community garden involve Square Foot Gardening, a technique that allows gardeners to cultivate small but intensively planted gardens.  The garden also provides a venue for social and cultural exchanges through learning about food security, nutrition, and cooking.

If you are an individual, school group, club or organization that is interested in participating in the seasonal planting, maintenance, harvesting, food processing distribution or marketing necessary to sustain a productive garden, please call 410.479.1009 or email dentoncommunitygarden@gmail.com. For those looking to make a donation, there is also a wish list of gardening items online at www.dentoncommunitygarden.com.

The Denton Community Demonstration Garden has been made possible by funding from the Caroline Human Services Council and the Woman’s Club of Denton and through the support of countless volunteers and organizations.  Thank you for helping us plant the seeds for a better tomorrow.
