CCDS breaks ground on new community garden
The Coastal Center for Developmental Services will be building a new community garden.
They held a groundbreaking ceremony Friday morning at 1249 Eisenhower Dr.
The garden will feature bricked walkways, benches, a gazebo and clusters of flowers and fruit trees. Legacy bricks and commemorative items will be sold as fund-raisers for the garden.
The non-profit organization serves more than 300 adults dealing with developmental disabilities in the area.
They say they’re excited about all the possibilities this garden project could bring.
“We have all kinds of aspects in the garden that can be purchased, or contributed, or donated; so we look forward to the community participating with this and that,” said Kathy Thompson, executive director of CCDS.
Fruits, vegetables and herbs grown in the garden will be used by Quantum Catering, and the garden will be tended by individuals from our programs and staff, according to CCDS.
Community volunteers are welcome to help with the preparation and construction of the garden.
