Garden Plot Program Update - In 2011, Brambleton’s developer generously provided the temporary site at the Town Center for the "Let Us" Grow Garden Plot Pilot Program. As ground-breaking for the new Town Center residential section is scheduled to occur in the near future, the current location of the garden plots will not be available during the 2016 growing season.
BCA received positive feedback about the program, and BCA’s Grounds & Facilities Committee is working to find an alternate location and will continue to explore possibilities in hopes to continue the program. The future of the program at this time is unknown.
Updates will be published via the Friday Flash, Facebook, and on the community website, www.brambletonhoa.com, as they are available. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
