The Village of Kampsville has been hard at work this week, tilling and planting to ready their new community garden for spring.
The garden was discussed at recent board meetings and has been accomplished through the donation of plants and other supplies as well as labor from members of the community. This is the first year for the garden which is hoped to become an annual Kampsville tradition.
The garden is located behind Bill and Marcia Agney’s Christmas Store and their new ice cream shop, the Kampsville Kreamery, which is located right next door and will open soon.
Volunteering their time to work in the garden over the weekend were Kenny Johnson, Ed Johnson, and Dustin Scoggins. Other weekend gardeners were Kampsville Village Board member Dennis Johnson, Kampsville Mayor Amanda Johnson, and young Ryland Wock, who planted vegetables on Sunday.
The plants will be watered and cared for by volunteers and the harvest will be shared by the community for free.
“It’s going to be where anybody can have any of the produce,” said Mayor Johnson at April’s village board meeting. “I know a bunch of kids in town are excited about it.”
