Vermillion residents gather to discuss community garden

On Wednesday, Jan. 24, 25 Vermillion residents gathered in the Vermillion Public Library to plan and discuss the creation of a community garden. The community garden will be built on a lot owned by the Vermillion Area Arts Council behind the Washington Street Arts Center.

Each of the meeting attendees brought with them a different area of expertise, some in organic gardening, garden construction, grant writing and other fields. Everyone brought with them an enthusiasm and interest in creating a space for the community to gather and learn more about gardening.

The group discussed how to best construct raised beds in the former parking lot, opportunities for a children's garden plot and possible education programs. The next meeting will be held at 7 p.m. in the Vermillion Public Library on Wednesday, Feb. 7. If you cannot make it to the meeting but want to participate, please contact via e-mail or telephone either Rebecca Terk(organicpeas@hotmail.com; 202-0252) or Alex Berke (alex.berke@usd.edu; 677-6338).
