Welcome, Circle Community Garden!

Wow, HUGE congrats to El Cajon’s very own Circle Garden for a tremendous opening this past Saturday, the 23rd!

The garden’s Sandy Hood writes the following:

"The Grand Opening Ceremony of our Circle Community Garden was a fun and huge success!  Over 100 attended and enjoyed the fellowship, activities, drawings for prizes,  refreshments and ribbon cutting.  El Cajon City Councilman Tony Ambrose presented Pastor Steve with a city proclamation.  San Diego County Supervisor Dianne Jacob was there with her policy Advisor Janet Downs.  Ed from Armstrong Garden Center  handed out tomato plants and answered gardening questions along with master gardener Joyce Gemmell. 
 Joining in on the community spirit we were surprised when two residents of  Pacific Springs, a senior residence, brought over two huge platters of cookies to share.
Many new gardeners were signed up.”
Keep it up!
