Growing a Community

Green Thumbs Wanted

The City of Satellite Beach has constructed a community garden at the Desoto Park complex with the help of the Eagle Scouts and public works. We are looking to connect with residents who are interested in taking part in the LOGOS community garden. The Satellite Beach Sustainability Board would like to invite you to join us at LOGOS, residents are welcome to walk the garden from sun up to sundown 24/7 and 365. The Desoto Park Racquet Ball Courts official grand opening was on Saturday, October 28th starting at 12:00 pm until 3:30pm. We opened with a ribbon cutting, dedication of the “LOGOS” Community Garden. There was  food, live music, prizes, painting garden gnomes for kids and much more! The Board would like to encourage everyone to walk or ride your bike to the garden. There were many hands that have helped create this garden, and the City is very thankful to everyone who has pitched in. The idea of the garden was brought before the Board last year by 9 year old resident Roman Vigliotti and was passed by City Council. The garden is modeled after the F.I.T. garden “Ethos” and F.I.T intern Zach Eichholz helped with the design. Eagle Scout Troop 309 helped gather volunteers to help with the build. Big thanks to the Public Works team and everyone who helped make this possible.

We are currently full for this year, all beds have been rented and we already have a waiting list for next year please visit our face book page at GoGreenSB.org or you can contact Nicholas Sanzone the Environmental Programs Coordinator via email at nsanzone@satellitebeach.org for more information and to be put on the list for next year.
