Silverthorne Community garden celebrates its bounty, needs a bridge

SILVERTHORNE – Silvana’s Community Gardens is lush with produce as the summer season closes, and its members are celebrating its bountiful harvest.

According to garden spokeswoman Maggie Butler, the group is also in the process of donating fresh vegetables to both the Rotary community dinner in Silverthorne and to the Dillon Community Church food bank.

“We have so much food, so many vegetables,” Butler said. “It’s unbelievable what we’ve been able to do in such a short time period.”

The garden club additionally has been working on building three new children’s garden boxes funded by a Copper/Frisco Environmental Trust grant.

Butler also said the garden needs to build a bridge on its plot near the Silverthorne Recreation Center, and its looking for donors to help with the project.
