Shade Shelter at Ivanhoe-Richardson Community Garden

Kansas City Community Gardens will construct a shade shelter at the Ivanhoe-Richardson Community Garden at the closed Richardson Elementary School at 3514 Park. With over 40 raised beds and plots, this garden is almost fully rented each year. The shade structure will provide a gathering space for gardeners to rest and socialize, creating stronger relationships in the community. It will also be a venue for community events and garden workshops.
