Ladybug Garden Fun!
Announcing the Land Trust’s new Children’s Garden
in partnership with Ladybug Events LLC
As a living classroom within the Land Trust, the Children’s Garden will encourage children’s curiosity, interest, and problem-solving in our natural world.
Generously supported by a host of wonderful partners including Terra Nova Compost, Beech Hollow Farms, Sustenance Design, and Urban Sprout Farms. You will also have the opportunity to support the garden and its programs by attending our events and through a crowdfunding campaign we will unveil this spring.
Submit a fun and unique name for the Children’s Garden! We will collect ideas and vote on them. Email submissions by April 1 to Missladybug@ladybugeventsllc.com with “Garden Name Submission” as subject. Community voting on submissions is April 9, 4:00 pm, at our third garden program. The official unveiling of the name will be June 4. The family that submits the winning name will have the great honor of placing the first garden gnome statue in the new garden, plus get their picture in the Lake Claire Clarion!

The Lake Claire Community Land Trust is a green oasis in the heart of Atlanta. But it is more than a place; it is also the community of neighbors and friends who gather here to celebrate nature, the arts, and each other. Come and visit!
Please check our calendar for upcoming events. Fundraisers and volunteer days offer frequent opportunities to lend your support. Becoming a member helps to sustain both our greenspace and our community. Joining one or more of our email lists will help you stay in touch. Donations are welcome via our Paypal link, our P.O. Box, or the chute at the main entrance. Get involved!
REMEMBER THE SNOW? Neighbor Kate Emery’s painting of the Land Trust on Jan. 28, 2014, is available as a matted print, ready for framing, and on men’s and women’s T-shirts. View the painting here, and get your print or T-shirt at our next event. (Thanks, Kate!)
“When I moved to Lake Claire, I didn’t know how I would fit into this neighborhood – I needed to make new friends, build a new life. Soon I felt I was living in a real community, where people know each other by name and are involved in shared activities. Then I realized that the community is centered in the Land Trust.” – a new neighbor
