Wesley College, Restoring Central Dover (RCD) and the Cooperative Extension to the DSU Department of Agriculture collaborated to create a community garden located on Wesley’s campus that was unveiled on Tuesday, May 16, 2017.
The mission of this garden is to bring the community together to learn the basics of sustainable gardening, engage in outdoor activity, preserve green space, and to provide a work/gathering place for others.
“This a great opportunity to work with the community toward a common goal of sharing resources and building relationships,” said Wesley College Associate Professor of Environmental Studies Dr. Stephanie Stotts. “We are excited about the project.”
The garden is located on the northwest corner of Wesley College, just east of north Governors Avenue and north of Cecil Street.
The garden will be open for registered volunteers on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 7:00 – 10:00 a.m., Thursdays and Sundays from 4:00 – 8:00 p.m. The program is funded in part by a Delaware Department of Agriculture grant and the Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR).
