THE LEMON GROVE GARDEN community
Planning and discussion with the City of Lemon Grove began in 2015 beginning with discussion at Thrive Lemon Grove meetings, and project development with Thrive Lemon Grove staff. The community was involved early via community presentations at the Lemon Grove Heal Zone meeting and at the Lemon Grove Health Fair on 9/12/15.
The idea was first presented to the Lemon Grove City Council on 10/20/15. In April 2016, the Lemon Grove Garden Council met with the City of Lemon Grove City Manager, submitted a proposal, and held a follow up meeting in August of 2017. A demonstration garden was constructed on the property of a Lemon Grove Community Garden volunteer in September 2017.
The Lemon Grove Garden Council meets on the first Saturday of each month, and has demonstrated commitment and perseverance as it has learned how to plan, and advocate for this project.
