Imagine sitting on a bench in the shade of an apple tree, biting into a fresh peach you just bought from the farmers' market.
When we come together, we create change.
The park will impact everyone in our community. After all, everyone eats.
Here’s a snapshot of what you can expect:
A year-round covered facility for the Columbia Farmers Market. This space will be available to the community outside of farmers market hours.
An interactive urban farm where you can learn about how food is grown. The food grown at the park will also provide meals to struggling families.
An outdoor nature playground where you can bring the little ones to explore the natural world around them. School groups and summer camps will use this fun outdoor space when they visit the Agriculture Park.
A multi-purpose building for special events like weddings, conferences, and parties. The event space will have a commercial kitchen for preparing healthy meals and teaching hands-on cooking classes.
Outdoor recreational trail. The trail will promote people to be more active.
What else can this park do for you? Like an onion, there are many layers to this project. As organizers continue to receive input from the community the list of features and benefits continues to grow.
Your dollars have a direct impact.
Mark your calendars for the campaign’s official launch. Come celebrate with us at 10:30am on Saturday, May 6th. Join us for the campaign launch where you can walk through a life-sized map of the future park and hear updates about the campaign's progress.
