Community Gardening Day is a very important time for both Como Corner and FairShare Farm Community Garden. It is a day to recognize the contributions of community gardeners to the beautiful, green communities they create and the benefits associated with them. It is also a way to spread awareness and for neighbors to get to know their community a little better. Each year, the Twin Cities hosts Community Garden Day on the second Saturday of August. Maps and a description for each of this year's participating gardens can be found through the Gardening Matters website. Attached at the bottom of this page is also a document that lists participating gardens and a short description of that particular garden's event. The gardens hold a range of events from herb tastings to face painting to scavenger hunts to tours to bee keeping demonstrations to just about anything!
With that said, the Como Corner volunteers, members of the FairShare Community Garden and the Community Building Committee of the Southeast Como Improvement Association are proud to bring you:
