Adelphi Acre Garden – 1 Year Anniversary, This Sat. 10am-1pm

Please join us at the Adelphi Acre Community Garden’s One Year Anniversary party on Saturday, April 30 from 10 am to 1 pm, located at the Southeast corner of Adelphi Lane and Amherst. Everyone is invited to attend this family friendly event and to help celebrate this milestone.

The anniversary will celebrate the continued effort of members, support from sponsors, local businesses and the partnership with multiple city and local agencies that has helped the garden grow.

Since opening in April last year, Adelphi Acre Community Garden has grown to include 75 garden beds with over 100 active members. The garden participates in the Capital Area Food Bank program and three oversized community beds are reserved for this effort. Garden members have been planting and harvesting these beds and delivering fresh produce weekly to Covenant United Methodist Church’s food pantry. Throughout this last year, the garden has been the recipient of many donations and gifts, partnered with local businesses and has been regularly assisted by local scout troops and volunteer organizations. Girl scouts from troop 645, 1259 and 1450 installed a Little Free Library, an arbor bench, two small children’s picnic tables, Mason bee houses, decorative plant labels, a permaculture herb spiral and several garden paintings.

Additional accomplishments include:

• Launching the Adelphi Acre Seedlings children’s workshops and garden
• Partnering with Countryside Nursery & Landscapes who sponsored and installed the new Adelphi Acre Teaching Garden
• Installing an Urban Orchard with six fruit trees donated by Treefolks with material support from both Whittlesey Landscape and Countryside Nursery
• Hosting two successful fund-raising plant sales

Join the celebration and enjoy these activities:

• Tour the garden, view featured artwork and new areas
• Visit the NEW AACG Adelphi Acre Teaching Garden
• Seed bomb making and caricature artist
• The Amazing Aaron, Juggler
• Master gardener panel
• Visit with sponsors and learn about sponsorship opportunities
