The first in a series of community gardens will be installed at the Prairie Commons Branch on Saturday, March 23, from 9:00 a.m. to noon. Local community members turned gardeners, accompanied by Gateway Greening volunteers, will assemble the 20 raised garden beds. Members from the St. Louis Audubon Society will also be on hand to install a 500-square foot butterfly garden. St. Louis County Library staff will also maintain a library garden bed, donating the produce to a local food pantry. To find out more about the community garden project, call 314-994-3300 or visit
