A New Mini-Park and "Community Giving Garden" ~ At the Hands Of Volunteers
Downtown Pocomoke City, Maryland
The gazebo that mysteriously appeared one fine day on the corner of Second and Market Streets is part of a new mini-park.
When completed the small park will include seating, a bike rack, trees, flowers, various other plants and an information station.
In an effort to get the youth involved in their downtown, high school students will be doing the gardening. In fact, they were supposed to begin tomorrow but I just received word that some of those students have already been to the corner lot TODAY and have planted shrubs and grasses in the area.
Who wants to garden???
Two charitable and creative Pocomoke residents are starting a "Community Giving Garden" downtown. Location of this garden will be on city owned property at the corner of Willow and Clarke Avenues.
Groundbreaking will be within the next two weeks.
The food harvested from the garden will be donated to the Samaritan Shelter and needy Pocomoke families.
If you are interested in volunteering your time - or if you are a business and would like to donate lumber or other gardening needs - please contact: email@example.com
