Front Yard Gardens

 

Gardens Everywhere for Everyone!

The Front Yard Garden Project was started in 2013, organized by a group of motivated community members interested in sharing time and resources to build garens where ground was otherwise being unused - front yards, back yards, terrace areaa, and other open space. 

The Front Yard Gardens (FYG project aims to educate and engage our community through the time-honored tradition of cultivating the land on which we live. Connect with neighbors to share skills and resources, as you help each other build garden beds of all types. TimeBank coordinators will help to organize efforts throughout Dane County or join us for community events to celebrating the harvest of our labor.

Our kick-off event for the 2015 FYG project will be at ShareFest! on May 20th at Tenney Park - featuring a plant and seed swap, plant and garden skill share workshops, and neighborhood sign-up season-long connections to the Garden Project.

Interested in being part of the working groups helping to organize the effort to cultivate, maintain, and harvest gardens throughout Dane County. We welcome you to join the Front Yard Garden Google group to stay in the loop
