Our crowd-funding campaign is underway at ioby.org and, with the help of the Community Capital Fund (and some young artists) work has begun on building a beautiful new garden for the Marlborough communities of KC. Hydrangeas AND tulips somehow found their way onto at least one colorful mural at our public launch on 4/16/16.

Announcing a new TOT initiative in partnership with the Marlborough Community Coalition!
While nobody, especially us, ever tires of planting tulips we are now get-ready-set-go and excited to participate in creating a new Hydrangea Garden and Community Plaza located in the heart of Marlborough Village.
Special thanks to the Community Capital Fund which awarded us a $20,000 grant to get started and also to ioby.org who is helping us move forward with our $3,640 matching funds/crowfunding goal.
So, enjoy the last 2016 blooming days of your tulips and then consider joining us Saturday, April 16 for our kick-off event.
Students from the Marlborough Community Center will create a mural on-site. A memorial bench honoring the Coalition’s founding president, Betty Ost Everly, will be installed. The bench was commissioned by Betty’s high school class reunion committee. Detailed garden plans will be available for review and volunteers can learn how they can be involved.
