Kansas City Community Gardens (KCCG) will be having a grand opening party to celebrate opening Northrup Park Community Garden. We will be inviting friends of KCCG, funders and supporters of the Northrup Garden. We would love for all of you to attend. The event will be held at 4:30 p.m., July 10, at the Northrup Park Community Garden, located at 939 Barnett, Kansas City, Kan.

The event is open to the public, so feel free to invite your family, friends and coworkers. There will be garden tours and light refreshments at the end. You might also get the opportunity to meet some of the gardeners and speak with them about their plots.

Northrup Park Community Garden is Kansas City Community Garden's first large rental plot garden in Kansas City, Kan. With more than 20 families growing food for their families, friends and community members, we are proud of the impact this garden is making on the health of the community. We look forward to celebrating with you!
