LandPaths and Neighbors Break Ground at Andy's Unity Park Community Garden

One of LandPaths' very first events of 2018 was a workday to break ground on the Andy's Unity Park Community Garden, which is located within the forthcoming Andy's Unity Park - a new Regional Park in the Moorland neighborhood of Santa Rosa.  

"Andy’s Unity Park grew from a community’s commitment, perseverance and belief in the healing power of a park. The plan for the park remembers the life of Andy Lopez, who was tragically killed at the site and also celebrates community unity and youth empowerment while providing a much needed neighborhood park with a variety of features for neighborhood residents and families to gather and play." - County of Sonoma Website

The neighbors in Moorland advocated for a community garden to be built as part of Andy's Unity Park and LandPaths was asked by the community to oversee the garden portion of the park, after being inspired by our efforts at Bayer Farm. 

Last Saturday, January 6th, in collaboration with neighbors, members of the Moorland Neighnorhood Action Team and Sonoma County Regional Parks, LandPaths held the first workday at Andy's Unity Park Community Garden. Neighbors broke ground, spread compost, planted seedlings, and shared food together.  5th district Supervisor Lynda Hopkins and her family joined in with shovels and wheelbarrows.

The park is still under construction and this event did not mark the opening of the park, which is scheduled for April 7th, 2018 and to which everyone is invited! Until then LandPaths plans to host organized workdays in the garden portion of the park, which we will advertise on our website. For more information, contact Jonathan Bravo at jbravo@landpaths.org.
