Cash McVay reported to Historic City News that fundraising for the Lincolnville Community Garden (LCG) has been a tremendous success.
McVay said, “We still have a little ways to go, but are very close to reaching our objective. Support from St. Augustine¹s business community has been phenomenal and inspiring.”
You can view a list of the garden’s sponsors or become a garden sponsor yourself by visiting www.citysprout.org.
The LCG construction team has formed! The team includes local contractors, Dennis Kellogg, Harold Lock with Red Bear Construction, Chad Smith with Newcastle Homes and Les Thomas architect.
The perimeter fence will be going up this week, followed by the open air classroom around the end of July and then the tool shed and raised garden boxes in August.
CitySprout will be posting updates and photos to the “progress blog” on their website as each component is installed. Each blog post will detail how the community and sponsors are working together to make it happen.
Once the garden structures listed above are completed, the garden will be open to the community to seed the garden and give it life.
“All who are anxiously waiting to get their hands in the dirt, please continue to be patient as the contractors complete the infrastructure”, asked McVay.
