Grow Waldo Garden Project represents our first opportunity to introducing and opening our newly designed and renovated Nonprofit center later this year.
We are building 10 garden beds in partnership with Kansas City Community Gardens (KCCG) on reclaimed parking lot surface.
This project is designed to not only beautify the Waldo urban landscape, but also to bring area neighbors together in community, to meet and utilize this new garden resource. It will provide a new area for Waldo that is inclusive, for all Waldo residents.
Partner provider, Kansas City Community Gardens will build and provide the seeds and plants for each (12’x4’x16”) raised planting bed.
Waldo Hub & West Waldo Neighborhood Association volunteers, along with a part-time staff, Gardener/coordinators will maintain- weed and water per KCCG Partner Guidelines until harvest. KCCG will inspect and consult.
The first five (5) raised bed planters will be on along Wornall Road on the South end of our property and will provide an immediate visual improvement in the local landscape along Wornall.
Phase 1 (Wornall side) starts May, 2022.
Phase 1 beds will be planted with (1. Salsa, 2. Marinara, 3. Sweet potato, 4-5 Pollinator Flowers Butterflies & Hummingbirds). We Need Volunteers.
Phase 2 (Washington St side) will build five (5) raised Planters on the West reclaimed lot area by August, 2022. Each area will be fenced. They will planted as the calendar dictates. The harvest from the plots will be distributed through the Waldo Hub or among area nonprofit kitchens, food pantries or Harvesters. Flowers will be Free For All.
This is a seasonal operation but the KCCG designed planters are specified to last 10-15 years that will be funded through sponsorships, grants or donations.
