Two new community gardens in the works

securedownload copy 2 334x460 - Two new community gardens in the works

After raising over $5,000 to help rebuild the Mckinley Park play structure, East Sac Give Back has identified its next community goal, the construction of two new community gardens in the Sacramento area.  It costs the City of Sacramento about $200,000 to pay for plans for the projects. staff time, prevailing wages for contractors, inspections etc. according to Community Garden laison Bill Maynard.  This would be for a community garden established in a public park.  

Because East Sac Give Back directs funds and resources both within the East Sacramento neighborhood proper, and to commmunities outside of itself, the organization has set a fund raising goal of $400,000.  This will allow another Sacramento community (to be determined) to also receive the multiple benefits of community gardening.  Those interested in learning more about the project can conact me at (916) 402-3261, visit the East Sac Give Back website at www.esgb.org, or find us on Facebook (we have a Page and a Group).
