The Kansas City Community Gardens, located at 6917 Kensington KCMO 64132,
816-931-3877, is a not-for-profit organization that provides self-help and educational assistance to low-income people, children and community groups in the metropolitan area to grow their own food from garden plots located in backyards, vacant lots, schoolyards and at community sites. Office Hours are Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm.
Come support KCCG while enjoying an evening in the magical Beanstalk Children’s Garden. A superb garden – featuring fruits and vegetables, seeds and grains, herbs, flower gardens and a water garden – can be experienced in the twilight hours at the sun set over Swope Park.
We still have lots of high quality straw for sale at $5.00 a bale. Straw mulch not only helps control summer weeds, it also helps keep the soil tempatures cooler and prevents your soil from drying out too quickly. This will greatly reduce your watering chores (and bills) for the summer. Straw is a great choice if you have a large garden since a bale can thickly mulch a large area.
RESERVE YOUR TILLERS. Group or individual gardens (anywhere in the metro area) are eligible for tiller loan. The half-day fee is $8 for green-card members and $15 for yellow-card members. A refundable deposit is required to reserve the tiller. Call Earlene at 816.931.3877 for more information.
