Reading ‘n Seeding

Gateway Greening proudly partners with the St. Louis County Library District in order to establish several community gardens at public libraries. Through the support of volunteers, local organizations and community members, we can bring beauty, sustainability and even more opportunities for learning to our city’s libraries.

 

Grant's View Community Garden (Affton, MO)

IMG_0320The newly constructed Grant’s View Library Branch opened its doors in December of 2015. Later, in the spring of 2016, Grant’s View Community Garden was placed on St. Louis County Library grounds supporting 28 raised garden beds of members from the surrounding community. Visitors can look forward to educational classes, gardening information, environmental programming, and a children’s garden being built in 2017 at the Grant’s View location.
