Montgomery Parks Seeks Public Input on Community Garden at Nolte Local Park

Montgomery Parks seeks public input on a proposal to install a community garden at Nolte Local Park. The meeting will take place on Tuesday, Dec. 4, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in classroom 001 of East Silver Spring Elementary School located at 631 Silver Spring Ave.

Parks staff has proposed the creation of an all-inclusive community garden at the site of the current Nolte Local Park activity building. The activity building is scheduled to be removed in early 2019 due to underuse and the inability to secure a tenant for the facility. This community garden would offer plot sizes less than 100 square feet and offer more accessible gardening options.

Residents will have the opportunity to comment at the meeting. For residents unable to attend, a comment forum will be available online following the community meeting.
