It's our 4th year! Amazing things have been happening.
We have had marvelous success. Many gardeners have been with us since the beginning and each year a few new ones join us. We continue to provide fresh produce to the needy via soup kitchens and Meals on Wheels.
River Valley Elementary School students continue to be enthusiastic gardeners. Each year they start their seeds in the classroom under grow lights and move them to the grow tunnel in early spring. Each class plants a different heirloom and each child gets to take a plant home. There have been tomato tasting sessions, greens during gym class and veggie soup all from their efforts. Six beds and a grow tunnel are reserved for the school.
Event plans and schedules for 2014 are in progress. Check back often for What's Happening.
Pick up a sandwich, cup of coffee and sit in our entry arbor or on our garden benches, relax and enjoy nature at work. Follow-up with a visit through our town, read the historic building plaques to understand why we're so proud of our community and its' historic past.
We hope you will visit our garden and participate in our events. You'll find us in southwest Michigan Harbor Country. Take I-94 exit 4, east on US12 to Three Oaks. The garden is located behind River Valley Three Oaks Elementary Campus, next to the old train station. Entry is off Oak Street.
Thanks to Three Oaks Township, Village of Three Oaks and our community for making our garden grow! Special thanks to The Pokagon Fund for their generous start up grant and to all the others who have dedicated time and money to our efforts.
