Community Garden Party was a Great Success!

Yesterday evening, Sunday July 27, 2008, the King Park / Rosedale Community Garden (KP/RCG) and Rosedale Citizens’ Alliance (RCA) cosponsored a garden party at King Park / Rosedale Community Garden; it was a fantastic success! We had great weather (escaping two thunderstorms), delicious foods and inviting conversations with neighbors and gardeners. Thanks to the hard and persistent work of garden & RCA members, the newly tamed “southern lawn” was a fitting venue for grilling, socializing (adults, children and dogs) and playing a friendly game of horse-shoes.

Cafe Roma (411 18th Street, NE) donated panini-sandwiches & biscotti-cookies and MPD officers were in attendance, as well as, Ward 7 Councilmember Yvette Alexander and ANC6A07 Commissioner Gladys Mack.

KP/RCG & RCA would like to thank everyone who made the event a great success, especially those who worked so hard to prepare the community garden and surrounding grounds, organize and purchase supplies and food, create and distribute the fliers and displays, prepared and cooked food and help set-up and tear-down the event. Also, a big thanks to the current property owner for allowing KP/RCG & RCA to use the land for the community garden and the garden party.

We would also like to post more photos of the event, so if you have a few digital shots you would like to donate, send them to KPRCAGarden@gmail.com.
