Prospect Community Garden Spring Work Day!!

Kansas City Community Gardens will be hosting a volunteer work day to expand the Prospect Community Garden at 5008 Prospect (Blue Hills Community Services) on Saturday, March 4, 9:00 am – 1:00 pm.

We will be building raised beds and filling them with soil, constructing a shed and doing general clean-up and small projects around the garden to get ready for spring planting. Tools, wheelbarrows and shovels will be provided.  Please bring work gloves if you would like them. This is a family-friendly volunteer project and snacks and water will be provided.  If you have questions, email Andrea at or call 816-931-3877.

Garden entrance is on Wabash (one block west of Prospect). Please park on the street; the parking lot will not be available.

We hope you can join us!!!
