Newly approved Hilltop Garden to educate community

-A A +A
By Gina Schultz

A proposed piece of land educational garden has been approved that the Los Alamos Family YMCA will be operating on county property in the near future. The planning and development stages are slated to begin this spring.
The community voted for the name Hilltop Garden in an online vote in February.
Additionally, 50 individuals also elected to receive continued information about garden education efforts. The Y and the county are finalizing an operations agreement for the Y to host this garden as a result of a county Request For Proposal process last fall.
A license agreement is in the process of being approved.
“I am excited by the enthusiastic response of the individuals and groups in this community who want to be involved in the ‘growth’ of Hilltop Garden,” said Kimberly Pulliam, Y community programs director. “Our hope for this garden is that it will be a place that is welcoming to everyone and that it will be a place of learning and inspiration.”
The one acre piece of land is on the North Mesa near the stables, next to the tennis courts. Planning to build a garden and have members of the community volunteer their time to use the garden as an educational outlet.
