MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
Want to shape the future of Gillespie? Then let your voice be heard. People who are active in community development can have a big impact on the conversations that inform that space. The takeaway is that if you have something worth contributing, take ownership of it and the whole community will benefit.
We welcome people who voice their opinions, share their expertise and have a helpful attitude. All of you help build and maintain our thriving community.
COLONIAL GIVING GARDEN
At the Colonial Garden, we can learn sustainable and organic gardening practices as well as laugh, and enjoy the fresh air. We hope the garden will be a place for building relationships while caring for the earth, growing good food, and sharing its nourishing harvest.
How can you help? We need volunteers to water the plants, pull weeds...
Est. in 2018, Grow Gillespie is a community-based group working together,
