COLUMBIA, MO, June 7, 2011 — The River Fountain on the Boone County Courthouse Square is being converted into a series of container gardens. We would like to encourage Boone County gardening groups or individual master gardeners to Adopt-A-Plot and help beautify Courthouse Square.
There are five plots total, each 38 inches wide by 24 feet long. Each plot will be filled with a container mix of topsoil and compost. Adequate drainage will be installed for each plot, and water will be available from a nearby spigot.
Organizations that adopt-a-plot can advertise their participation with a sign up to 5 inches by 8 inches in their plots.
Each container will be a self-contained container garden embodying the diversity of gardening interests represented in Boone County. Some possible concepts for your plot include:
