If you want to get involved but don’t know where to begin, check out the Third Place Commons. “Third Place Commons…[is] where you can study, eat, read, play (there’s a small play area for toddlers), or just watch people come and go,” shares Claudette Meyer. “[It’s] a truly wonderful community gathering space!”
Every Sunday (Mother’s Day-mid-October) from 10:00am-3:00pm, they host their Farmers Market, with local vendors selling some of the best food, flowers, and plants around. It’s the perfect way to get acquainted with the talent that makes this city thrive.
If you’re looking for more involvement, the LFP Garden Club meets in the Commons on the 2nd Tuesday of each month from September-May. With knowledgeable speakers from all walks of gardening life, this club is a great way to snag some tips while meeting your friends and neighbors.
