Atchison's new garden seeks volunteers for Saturday work

(KAIR)--Now that the ground is broken for a new community garden in Atchison, volunteers are needed to help move the project forward.

The Merrywood Community Garden, as it's been named, is described in an official social media post as "a non-denominational, fully accessible garden open to the public," with handicapped accessible garden spaces available.

The garden, a project made possible through a partnership between Mount St. Scholastica, Catholic Charities, and the Atchison Community Gardening Group, is located near Atchison's South 9th and Spring Streets, on the north end of Mount St. Scholastica.

Ground was broken for the garden on April 7, and now actual construction will begin, with that effort to begin Saturday morning, at 9:30, with the release calling it "a great learning event for those aspiring to build their own raised gardens at home." Parents and local educators alike are encouraged to help see local youth take part in the effort.

Saturday's work is expected to last until around 12 noon.
