WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The City of West Lafayette is celebrating Earth Day, Apr. 22 by constructing a new community garden.

All the action will take place at the West Lafayette Community Gardens in Cumberland Park. The West Lafayette Parks department plans to move the current garden to a spot near Michaud-Sinninger Woods Nature Preserve and the West Lafayette Farmers Market.

The department said this relocation will provide an opportunity to increase the number of garden beds available.

Volunteers will be building planter boxes, placing soil, painting and more. This event will be held on Apr. 22 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m and it's open to the public.

If you’re interested in participating you can call West Lafayette Deputy Director of Development Erin Easter at (765) 775-5161 for information.
