Spring Update

Starting the Season at Douglas Community Gardens

MEMBERS: If you haven’t already read it, please review the email from us about starting the growing season at the gardens! If you can’t find the email, let us know and we will send you a new one.

*NEW* Volunteer Needs List

Check out the list of current volunteer projects on the new Volunteer Updates page. Some of the needs right now include moving mulch from Crow Hill to B Street, spreading mulch at B Street, building a tool shed, and joining the greenhouse group.

All members are responsible for a minimum of 5 volunteer hours at the garden.

B Street Garden has a New Fence

A huge thanks to our rock star volunteers George Partlow, Alan Davis and Darren Snyder & family for finishing the B Street garden fence!

Have Fun at the Gardens!

As a member, you can use the gardens as a community space with your friends (for relaxed, quiet activities). We also want to hear from you about activities/events that you would like to see happen at the gardens this year.
