Downtown Hammond Community Gardenin Projects
How It Started + Goals for the Future
The Downtown Hammond Community Garden is a subproject of the DDD's Old Feed & Seed Revitalization Initiative.
What's planned for the future of the Community Garden? That's limited to only the imagine of the people in Downtown Hammond! We've discussed bed rentals, demonstration gardens, and a meditation area. Join us and bring even more possibilities to life!
