Eagle Scout Project at the Foothills Learning Garden

An exciting project will be taking place in the Foothills Learning Garden this Saturday, August 6th!   Weather barriers will be built over the school garden beds to benefit the students' STEM program at Foothills.  The construction of the barriers will be led by Patrick, a boy scout and former Foothills student, for his Eagle Scout project.   Please click on the link below to learn more about Patrick's project and/or to make a donation for supplies.

Plots Sold out for 2016!

Our 22 community plots sold quickly this year.  We will keep a waiting list running, so if you're interested in getting a plot this year (if someone backs out) or next year (if any of our current gardeners give up their plots), please send an email with the subject "waiting list" to foothillsgarden@gmail.com.

Anyone interested in a plot may also want to contact some of the other local gardens: Woodmen Roberts Elementary, Rockrimmon Elementary, and Eagleview Middle School may have plots available.

It has been inspiring to see the interest in our garden keep growing!

Plots Available for the 2016 Season!

A few people have already started asking...how can I get a plot for the 2016 season?

Here's what you need to know.

Rental fees for the 2016 season remain the same: $70. This fee includes your plot and your water for the season.

We will begin accepting applications from new gardeners at our garden kickoff event at Foothills Elementary School on Wednesday, March 9th from 6:00pm-8:00pm. This is not a formal meeting, but rather an opportunity for new gardeners to secure a plot for the 2016 season and ask questions about the garden. A few returning gardeners and committee members will be there to answer questions.

The lease agreement is available online only this year. We will have a few computers at the kickoff event so that you can fill out the agreement right then and there. At the event we will be able to accept payment by check.

Once the event is over, if we have any plots remaining we will post a link to the online lease agreement in order to fill the empty plots.

2015 gardeners in good standing with the garden have first dibs on plots -- their lease agreements must be received by March 1st in order to secure a plot again for the 2016 season.

If you have questions, please send us an email at foothillsgarden@gmail.com.
