The gardening season is just getting started. If you love gardening and growing vegetables, but don't have the sun, space or have a deer problem, consider gardening this year at the Giving Garden. There are still raised garden beds available for this years growing season.
Here are some of the new exciting things happening at the garden. We are currently installing a 3600 gallon watering system on a timer, that will water all of the raised rental beds as well as our theme beds located in our fenced in area. Just think about that. Growing your own vegetables and flowers and not having to worry about watering up to twice a day during the dry, hot summer months. Priceless! Other fun things going on at the garden are a Monarch way station, a worm farm and installing a Hydroponics system. We have 7 raised beds that measure 3' by 12' available for just $100 each for the year. This includes the water collected from the roof on a timer, a securely fenced in area to keep deer out and access to our compost pile.
You can rent a bed for yourself, your family or consider teaming up with some friends to grow some healthy veggies. We are looking forward to a productive growing season and hope you'll join us for all the fun, at the Giving Garden.
If you're interested in renting a bed or volunteering with one of our exciting projects, please contact Marty Wager, president of the Giving Garden, at 513-910-9876 or email him at email@example.com
Kennedy Heights Cultural Center!
Phase 1 construction activity started this month and the pace of activity will accelerate leading up to the late-June occupancy of the Cincinnati Art Museum. The Museum's first and only neighborhood outreach center will provide state-of-the-art storage and viewable display of their archived collection.
The Kennedy Heights Montessori Center takes occupancy in early August and will begin the 2013 school year with a totally new 8000-square-foot facility and spacious outdoor play area that adjoins the June Alexander Playfield.
The Kennedy Heights Arts Center is developing plans for artist studios as well as conference and event spaces which will compliment and support their facility and programming goals. They will take occupancy during Phase 2 of the project which is expected to kick off later this year.
To date, nearly $2 million in funding has been raised towards the Phase 1 funding target. Now our goal is to raise $150,000 from individual donors, residents, families, other neighborhood stakeholders, and arts patrons throughout the city. We need to raise at least half of that amountor $75,000this spring and the remaining portion by the fall. All donations will be used toward capital construction costs to complete common area improvements and tenant spaces for the project partners.
Individual members of the Kennedy Heights Development Corporation (KHDC) Board have already donated or pledged $15,000 to get us to our initial goal of $75,000. In addition to this amount, other long-time Kennedy Heights residents have pledged $30,000 as a challenge grant! This means that every dollar donated from individuals and families like you will be doubled, giving us the opportunity to meet our initial goal of $75,000! All new individuals and families who donate any amount will see their gift doubled and also receive public recognition at the Cultural Center.
To find out more about our Cultural Center project or to make a tax-deductible gift, please contact
Casey Riordan Millard, KHDC Treasurer, at 513-703-7771 or visit http://www.kennedyheights.org/khdc/Donate.html.
Our Cultural Center will be a regional attraction for the Tri-State area and the only facility of its kind with a direct relationship to a major art museum. We need your financial support to complete this exciting development in the bright landscape of Kennedy Heights and Cincinnati.
