Children's Garden

If you haven't had a chance to visit the children's section of the Raymond Community Garden, please stop by and help tend the thriving herbs and vegetables. Mint, lavender, peppers, kale, pumpkins and more are growing in our little garden!

Summer Reading Program
Our Summer Reading Program is starting up!
No book tally to keep track of, no online requirements!
Just a summer of READING and FUN!
This Summer's program theme at RVL is "Jack and the Beanstalk".
Drop by the gazebo and take a photo with Jack's beanstalk while filling out your summer reading registration form.
Karen will email you each week with reading activity updates!
Upcoming activities: an outdoor garden story walk, planting beans for your own beanstalk, making castles, exploring your community, and more!
Please send or post photos for us to share with other Summer Reading Program participants on Facebook.
