ALTON — Residents are invited to participate in Alton’s April community garden Saturday, April 9, in the back yard at the Milton Schoolhouse.
Gardening 101 will introduce participants to gardening equipment and help them plan for their gardens. The Milton Schoolhouse Gardens will be another new green space in the Alton community. Participants can meet community members who want to join in the fun making their mark in Alton’s newest community garden spot. Garden tools will be provided. This is an outdoor event, so participants should dress appropriately for the weather and gloves are encouraged. Rain will cancel the event. Participants should bring a small container or jar with a lid to take home some of their own gardener’s hand scrub. This activity is associated with undergraduate research at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.
