Documentary in the Works

Our garden is getting some exciting publicity!

Frou Gallagher is a Video Producer for the City of Fayetteville's Government Channel. In addition to maintaining a plot in the garden, Frou is creating an educational video about the Community Gardens In The Parks Program for the government channel. Walker Park is the first and only project of this city program, so Frou's documentary will primarily be about our garden. 

In the words of Lisa Netherland, horticulturist for the city of Fayetteville and advisor of the program, "This video will be a valuable tool for supporting future community gardens in Fayetteville."

Check out Frou's latest work, featuring Walker Park Gardeners on the day we got our donation from Ozark Natural Foods!

And don't forget to RSVP to our facebook event and like us on facebook

Also, props to the Fayetteville Community Garden Coalition's Seed Swap today. It was a wonderful event. A bunch of folks came out, shared seeds and insight and laughs about silly plant jokes (as in me) and Bean Mountain Farms gave a seed starting demonstration. Kudos to the event planners!

Today, at the Swap, a community member told Ryan and I that we're probably going to get more interested gardeners than we can handle. I sure hope so.
