We have save a spot just for you in the shade!

September 19th.   1PM TO 3PM - GARLAND COMMUNITY GARDEN

AT NAAMAN SCHOOL ROAD & BRAND 75040

 

Come to the Garland Community Garden for the Fall Garden Fest with lots of freebies which include common milkweed seeds as well as seeds from other plants  we have grown in 2021 as well as gifts from our own Garland Neighborhood Vitality.

 

Come tell others about your gardening experiences from 2021 and before. What have you been most successful at growing?  

Walk around our garden and look at all the seedlings coming up for our Fall Garden.  We have turnips, beets, butternut squash and broccoli to name a few.  You’ll also see plenty of swallowtails and Monarch butterflies.  At just about any time of day, some part of our garden is in the shade.  We have our tables and chairs set up in a shady spot.

We also have some more exotic plants growing as well:

Look for Cardoon in our Multicultural bed.

 

Amaranth is another ancient lovely at the garden.  The Aztecs used the grain and ate the leaves which can be an unusual addition to any salad.

We have peas reaching for the ski surrounded by giant zinnias.

 

We have several stands of Common Milkweed--the home for Monarch caterpillars  .

Our lemon grass is huge!

 

Come see our Jujube tree and try a jujube fruit.  We have many individually wrapped in plastic bags.

Search our milkweed patches and see if you can find a Monarch caterpillar.

See our two new beds that we have devoted to the Good Samaritans of Garland.

 

AND MEET OTHER GARDENERS HERE WHO LIVE IN THE DALLAS AREA!
