Veterans Gardening Project at Landmark Park

430 Landmark Drive, 430 Landmark Drive Dothan AL, 36303

Veterans of all ages, active-duty military, and their families or support networks are invited to join us for a casual gardening project. The Veteran’s Gardening Project will host a series of workshops that will cover gardening basics for those getting started and advanced topics for our seasoned gardeners. We will work in the raised bed gardens at Landmark Park to grow everything from squash to native pollinator beds. A short workday in the garden will follow each educational demonstration, weather-dependent.
For a complete schedule, visit http://www.landmarkparkdothan.com/veterans-gardening-project/. We ask that all participants wear a mask and bring their gardening gloves.
