First Community Connection Day was May 21: Questa Farmers Marker and more Park Improvements

May 22, 2021

On May 21st local youth and community members joined together to build on the momentum and progress made at the Questa Park in April. This was the first Community Connection Day, part of a series of intergenerational days of community service and celebration, taking place in and around Questa, May through October, 2021 on the third Friday every month. This consistent coming together, showing up for each other and our community is part of our collaborative creative placemaking efforts.

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”

-Winston Churchill

Our focus areas for the day were continued care and improvements at the park and preparing the Questa Farmers Market site for its opening day on Sunday, May 30.

At the Questa Park, the new trees planted on April 23 were connected to the drip irrigation system and staked for wind protection, prairie dog holes were filled, mulch was spread, weeds pulled and a picnic table repaired and painted. At the Questa Farmers Market site, the many weeds encouraged by our wet spring were pulled from moist soil by lots of eager hands, readying the garden beds for planting and the site for it’s first patrons of 2021.

“Caring has the gift of making the ordinary special.”

-George R. Bach
