The City of Olathe, Olathe Medical Center, K-State Extension, K-State Olathe, The Olathe Community Garden committee and members of the Faith Community have joined together to form the Community Garden Partnership.
The focus of this partnership is to introduce the Olathe community to the wide-variety of personal and communal gardening opportunities throughout the city. Currently, the partnership is working with 5 established gardens and a sixth garden that will be available for the 2014 growing season.
On January 25n at the Olathe Health Education Center, the Community Garden Partnership will offer its first educational program for anyone interested in learning more about successful gardening. Gardeners participating in the Community Garden Workshop will walk away with a better understanding on how to prep their gardens (home or community) for the spring season. For more information on how to get involved in our community gardens, including leasing options, personal vs. communal donation plots and more, register for the Community Garden Workshop by January 17.
