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.
