Belle Haven community garden is growing bigger

 

Twelve fruit trees and 10 additional garden beds are on the way to the Belle Haven community garden, thanks to an $8,000 donation from Facebook, the Rotary Club of Menlo Park has announced.

A 25-bed garden opened on Nov. 22 on city-owned property at Ivy Drive and Hill Avenue. One Belle Haven family is assigned to each 4-foot-by-8-foot raised bed, which are free to use on a one-year agreement. The Rotary Club is also sponsoring gardening classes four times a year at the site.

"Over the past two years, the Rotary Club of Menlo Park has made connecting to the community one of the top priorities for service," said Glen Rojas, former club president, in a press release.

In addition to the Rotary Club and main sponsor Greenheart Land Development, other contributors include Bavarian Nordic, Farmscapes, the city of Menlo Park, Recology, CalWater, Mission Engineers, Lynsgo, and now Facebook.
