8/4 Water off until leak is fixed

The water at the garden will be turned off until the WJC grounds crew is able to fix the leak in the water line.  This may take a while because the ground needs to dry out enough for the crew to work.  You might need to consider bringing in water for your garden.  This is inconvenient but necessary because the leak has caused much damage to plants in gardens close to the line. Please bear with the WJC crew as they work to repair the problem.See More

Announcements

Info on Garden Work Day, Saturday April 16th, 8AM-12PM

Volunteers from William Jewell will be at the garden around 8:30-9 to help gardeners.  These volunteers will be available to help gardeners with tasks and place compost on gardeners if asked.

NOTE--The volunteers will also be placing wood chips on the grass paths between the gardens this year so the WJC grounds crew won't have to mow.  

If any issues arise you can call me on my cell if I'm not at the garden (816) 522-2136 or contact Jeff Busher from WJC (816) 853-2598.

Please remember to be courteous at the garden and dispose of any trash.  If the trash barrel is full please take your trash with you and dispose of it off site.

April 16th-Spring Work Day from 8AM to Noon

Our Spring Work Day is April 16th from 8 AM to 12 NOON.  This is a good day to meet other gardeners and give or receive help as it is needed!  Be sure your plot is cleared of items by Friday, April 1st.  On that day the plots of those of you who indicated you DO NOT want your plot tilled will be marked on all four corners with colored marking flags.  Please DO NOT remove these until after the tilling.  Tilling will happen between April 2nd and April 15th.  If your plot is not clear of items, it will not be tilled.

About us...

Harvest Hill is a one acre community garden located in Liberty, Missouri that started through a partnership between William Jewell College and local church members of Second Baptist. Harvest Hill is located off RE Bowles Drive in a former soccer practice field in the NE corner of the William Jewell campus. (See map below)

The purpose of Harvest Hill is to provide a place for Liberty community members to garden, seeking especially to help those who might not be able to have a garden on their own.

The opportunity to garden helps people stretch their food dollar and improve their nutritional intake. Community gardens also improve the overall quality of life in neighborhoods by encouraging self-sufficiency and a sense of community among participants.

Garden plots are available to residents of Liberty and surrounding communities, and William Jewell College students, staff and faculty members.
