Grant helps community garden grow

The Elgin Lions Club recently received a community garden grant of $2,500 through the efforts of Kate Bottger and Robert Thomas. 

The grant will allow the Lions to work with other community groups, including the local National Honor Society, Future Farmers of America, Stella Mayfield school and Elgin Garden Club to create a community garden for the people of Elgin. 

Bottger said the dollars allow a variety of community groups to work together to not only provide educational information of renewable resources, but will help beautify the community. 

Bottger said the area selected was a community eyesore and this will help beautify the community.

Under the direction of Thomas and Everett Grandeen, materials for 26 beds have been made and individuals or groups can ask for a planting bed to use. The plan is to have 40 individual beds if needed. 

The elementary staff at Stella Mayfield school has been very supportive, according to Bottger, and have beds for each of the classes to use for educational purposes. 

“What I like is everyone in Lions did their piece, and then handed the project off to someone else,”  Bottger said.

The garden spots were available to the students at the start of the school year.
