We are so excited to inform everyone that the groundbreaking of the Paseo West Community Garden occurred this past Saturday morning, March 16th. With the loving help of volunteers from Rez Downtown and Lees Summit Christian Church we were able to get much work done on leveling the land and prep work for installing raised beds. It was a cloudy, yet exciting day for the Hope Faith and the Grow Paseo team and it would not have been made possible without the help of these wonderful community members. We are in the process of scheduling frequent work days for our volunteers and Grow Paseo members to begin preparing for our big Spring Launch event on April 27th. Things are very busy on our end, but with more hands to help us out we are starting to see much progress in the making of this beautiful new garden! We will continue to keep you all updated on official work days and details on the big upcoming event. Enjoy the before and after pictures below, photos taken by Grow Paseo team member Brittany Nicklas.
