New Atchison garden sees growth

(KAIR)--A successful first day of work for volunteers who gathered at the location of Atchison's new community garden Saturday morning.

According to a social media post made to the official Merrywood Community Garden social media, men, women and students arrived in small groups Saturday, using the tools necessary to construct the garden.

Flats were constructed and populated, with the early crops set, "while four potato towers were constructed and filled to the brim."

The volunteers, when Saturday's work was complete, were treated to cinnamon rolls.

Saturday's volunteer effort followed the April 7 groundbreaking at the garden, located near Atchison's South 9th and Spring Streets, on the north end of Mount St. Scholastica.

The Merrywood Community Garden, a non-denominational, fully accessible garden open to the public, complete with handicapped accessible garden spaces available, is developed through a partnership between Mount St. Scholastica, Catholic Charities, and the Atchison Community Gardening Group.
