According to the post on our WCC Facebook Page by the Picardo Farm P-Patch Facebook Page, there is a meeting on Monday, January 23rd to unveil the P-patch’s expansion plans. As we reported earlier, the park received a Neighborhood Matching Fund Small and Simple Grant and held an initial public meeting in October 2011.
The following what was posted on the WCC Facebook Page (formatting done by WCC):
