Today we will be creating our "Lasagna Garden Beds" by layering various organic materials in the boxes to create just the right mix for our summer of growing ahead. We invite you to come learn by doing as we host a free workshop on this topic. Once you go through the process with us you'll have the confidence you need to try this method at home by yourself!
Team leader: Ginger-Rose Krueck, Certified Master Gardener and Co-Director of GROW
Location: Terraced Garden
*Please park in our parking lot before the barrier and walk so as to avoid traffic on the roadway near the garden. Children will be at play on site this day.
- Fill the newly constructed bedframes with materials that will be gathered beforehand
- Move any leftover material away from the garden for storage till needed
How To find us:
GROW is located at Two Rivers Park in Donelson. The address of 3105 McGavock Pike will bring you almost to the front our space. Here you must turn off of McGavock onto a small park roadway and then take an immediate right hand turn, crossing over the greenway bike trail, and veering to the left. Follow this roadway until you find our small parking area. From here, park and walk past the barrier to the end of the road where you'll find us hard at work!
Kids are always welcome at GROW!
Please feel free to bring them with you, with the understanding that you are responsible for their supervision at all times. You should note also that at this time there are no restroom facilities on our side of the park. The park restroom is located near the skate park off of Two Rivers Parkway and is not walking distance from our site for a small child.
Dog Policy: Out of consideration for children and volunteers who may have anxiety or fear related to dogs we ask that you leave your pal at home. However, dogs are permitted to visit GROW at times outside of workshops, classes, and organized volunteer days so long as they remain on their leash, per our citywide PARKS regulations. Also, please be aware that the feces of dogs (and humans) contains E.coli bacteria that can be harmful to people and wildlife, as well as being a serious pollution to waterways. We ask that you be mindful of your pet and always pick up after them. Trash cans are located in the parking lot for disposal of animal waste.
Tobacco and Alcohol Policy: GROW seeks to improve the over-all health of our community through urban farming education and the promotion of physical activity in public parks. For this reason, we ask that you refrain from smoking or consuming alcohol on the premisis. This will help us maintain a healthy environment for all who visit GROW.
