Irby Park Community Garden Project Set Aside

A public forum was held on April 28, 2014 to discuss the concept of a Community Garden and Passive Park t0 be developed in the vacant land adjacent to Irby Park.  Community members who attended the meeting overwhelmingly expressed their disapproval of a project to build a second community garden location at the site.  Only a small number of residents supporting the garden attended the forum, and City leadership is not expected to pursue the project at this time.

HBCG plans no further action to pursue a community garden location in the Irby Park community.  We appreciate the enormous effort given by the many volunteers who wanted to create a garden in their neighborhood and deeply regret this outcome.
