The Springbrook Connections Garden consists of 30 individual plots that are privately planted and tended by members of the community. Plots are assigned on Parks Appreciation Day in April.
Additionally, the Garden contains plots which are harvested for, and distributed through, the St. Leo's Food Bank Truck that stops in Springbrook 3 times each Saturday. Last year, the Garden provided 1,786 pounds of fresh produce to the community.
New for 2019, a Garden Guardians Program for teens will begin. Teens will learn horticultural and agricultural skills while earning community service hours for high school.
Garden Meetings are held every Tuesday at 2:30 p.m.
Garden Work Parties will be held on Saturday, May 18th and Saturday May 25th from Noon to 5 p.m. Snacks will be provided. Bring your own water bottle.
