If the Blog on "5 Ways to Make Gardening Easier" has motivated to have a garden but you still don't know if you have the time to keep up with it we have the perfect compromise- The Springs at Skyline Trails!
This community is the first in our "Springs Communties" to offer a community garden. Since the communites are all designed around "Lifestyle taking Center Stage" we knew that a Community Garden would be a perfect place for people to come together around a common interest.
Our first goal was to get a Pergola erected to ground this area and provide a place to escape the summer sun! It is set in a prime location in the community and has great access to the community pond.
Next came the raised flower beds. We knew in order for people to participate we would want to make sure the beds were easy to maintain and not back breaking! Green Okie accepted the challenge and created a beautiful space for the residents.
Since this is our newest community we decided to reach out to a local Girl Scout Troop, Troop #340, to see if they would be interested in taking this on as a community project! At Landmark Fine Homes, giving back to the communtiy is a core value. This was the perfect project to help make that happen. The Girls Scouts needed a place for the summer and are also very interested in giving back. And so it began......
As you can tell it is taking off! Not only is the community garden growing, so is the community itself! We have added several new families a month this quarter and couldn't be happier.
If the bounty is more than the community can consume plans are to donate to Manna Pantry in Yukon. The Girls Scout Troop has already spent multiple hours volunteering for this wonderful organization and knew it would be the perfect spot to donate to.
Does your community offer a Garden? If not and you are looking for one that does, be sure and check out The Springs at Skyine Trails where homes start at $198,000!
