The first signs of spring are here: snow is melting, trees are budding, and the LEAF Open House is coming!
Lakewood Earth & Food (LEAF) Community will be holding its 2011 Open House on Sunday, March 20th, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. in the Multipurpose Room at the main branch of the Lakewood Public Library. This is an opportunity to meet LEAF members, find out what’s in store for 2011, get information, and ask questions about LEAF programs like the Third Thursday Speaker Series, bulk buying, community gardening and our community supported agriculture (CSA) programs.
LEAF Community facilitates community gardens at five locations in Lakewood: Cove Park, Kauffman Park, Madison Park, the Westerly, and Webb Park. A historical garden was also initiated at the Oldest Stone House at Lakewood Park and LEAF assisted the Lakewood Library in establishing the Learning Garden at the Madison Branch, both in 2010. Come find out more about each of these gardens and what space is available. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for questions about community gardening.
On the third Thursday of each month from May through September, LEAF Community holds an educational session covering topics related to local food and green living. Topics have included composting, rain barrels, canning, beekeeping, and many others. Sessions are held at local businesses around Lakewood. A representative from the education committee will share the Third Thursday Speaker Series calendar for 2011. Contact email@example.com for questions about the speaker series.
