Those who tend to the Discovery Garden at LaVista Park in Godfrey are excited about the continues interest in organic gardening, both on their grounds, and at a handful of other locations around the area. One of the more promising developments in recent weeks is the prospect of new gardens being put in at area schools, according to Jaime Hines, head farmer and Project Manager.
A couple of times each year, there are Harvest Parties at the garden, located on Route 3 just before Clifton Terrace. A pair of stone pillars mark the entrance to the park on the south side of the highway. For more information, call 772-6315.
