Martin park community garden


The Garden's Location -

Phases I & II

    The garden, during it's first phase will be located in the lot at the rear of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 16100 Lawton.  In it's second phase it will include the lot to the north of the church just on the other side of the home shown in the rendering. 

Our Garden

     Our Project will begin by constructing a Pavillion.  The community made it clear, they want a place to gather, meet, learn, exercise, picnic, and just relax .   Our youth can showcase their talents,  we can host lecture series, art & music programming,  spoken word and poetry.  Our pavillion will also double as a rainwater catchment system for our garden.

     The area in front of the play area will be redesigned and add beauty to the neighborhood.   Raised planter boxes with seating is designed to accommodate volunteers of all ages and abilities to grow vegetables, fruit and flowers. 

   Beautiful, Safe, Fun,  and Therapeutic
